Hurry! Illustration Friday

Here's another quickie for Illustration Friday- not that there was a big hurry to post it, but it did get up here on a Wednesday, for a change of pace.
Watching a young Rufous Hummingbird busily zipping in and out of the flowers, I decided to stop dilly - dallying and start painting. If only my brushes worked as quickly as this little one's wings!

  3. He is gorgeous Michele, how wonderful to have humming birds to paint :0) There is no sign of any "hurry" in your little watercolour, lovely work.

  6. I just happened to spot a hummingbird when I was making my coffee this morning. I rarely see one so it was a treat and so is your watercolor!
