#WorldWatercolorGroup

I missed yesterday’s prompt of ‘bones’, due to time constraints and some weird phenomenon happening to time itself, but with Hallo Valentine’s swiftly approaching I may be able to claw some time back and use that theme for then. We shall see. Time will tell. Hopefully.

On the subject of claws, today’s theme is ‘birds’, so I went for a quick hummingbird. I’ve never seen one in the UK, but when I visited Canada once, there were thousands of them. Well, I counted four, but there could have been thousands. This one wasn’t one I saw in Canada, just an image of one I found on an internet search. Another quick painting – just over an hour.

  1. Hummingbirds are fun. We have a feeder — they are only here April – October, but they are so much fun to watch. They are very territorial. Nice painting!

      1. No we haven’t seen any, and have been debating whether to put up a feeder even though it’s against the community rules to feed the wildlife. Stupid rule! 😕

        1. You’ll have to pop up some extremely discreet feeders and tell your visitors to keep quiet about it… it’s the only way! 😀
