Hummingbird and Trumpet Vine Flowers - watercolor


Walking this morning with my camera in hand, I passed by some bright trumpet vine flowers and stopped to take a couple of photos.

While snapping one shot, a hummingbird flew in to take a sip from the flowers. Love when that happens! It made a perfect reference photo. The picture of the hummingbird was not totally clear, but just enough for inspiration for this painting.
  • The original of this painting is sold.  Check my Etsy shop for currently available bird paintings or let me know if you'd like a print. Thanks for stopping by to enjoy the little hummingbird!

Oh, don't you just love trumpet vines and the hummingbirds they attract?

I also like the contrast between the warm flowers and the dark, cool background. :-)

Thanks! Yes trumpet vines are delightful especially for hummingbirds. Just had to paint this one.
