Hello All! Wanted to share this image that I painted a couple of days ago...I sent it as a birthday card for a dear friend. I've finally used the felt marker (on the birds) and love the way it paints, using a pencil for the tiny details. Background trees were made with stencils......

This beautiful and heart-warming! The blue palette in the background serves as a lovely contrast between the pink of the flowers and the soft colors of the hummingbirds. They are very well painted, light, small, and springy...this painting just makes one smile :)

Hey, Syl, that's fantastic... the birds are so realistic! The water is great too.

Very beautiful. It has a somewhat Chinese print sensibility to it even though the painting technique is quite different. But it's that vibrant, colorful, alive sense in them that just sort of jumps out at you here.
Terrific in every respect. Wonderful painting.

Fantastic hummingbirds ,you have done well with intergrating foreground and background:) Did you use the glitter brush for the blossum?;)

Wow...I really like this! It has a great atmosphere to it. The way the bright colors contrast with the darker purple used in the background gives it an almost "Impending" feel. Kinda like things aren't going to be all bright and happy for very long! Maybe that is just coming from inside me...lol! Great painting!

I think this is great and really holds its own in a forum full of different things to look at every day....sure do love this place.....
And the fact that it was made as a gift is the "icing on the cake."

So nicely done! I agree with all that has already been said about palette, etc. I am a great fan of colibrí (hummingbirds).

Brilliant!! Love the high key palette!!!! Tasteful in the extreme.

I could look at this and feel a magical tone as light as a hummingbird itself. The environment reflects their unimposing grace.

Fantastic job.

Syl49,
Absolutely breathtaking in every way. The soft palette, water,
frame, and artistry is exceptionally well designed and painted.
It reminds me of a high end, designer tapestry. Just beautiful! :)
