little one

$60 - about 4x4" (11cm x 11cm to be exact!) original oil painting
I painted this little bird for the Monday art dare challenge, which was to paint something starting with 'H'. I thought this cutie-patootie hummingbird would do the trick. They really are such remarkable tiny birds. The panel is approximately 4x4" which suits one of the world's smallest birds just fine!
I wanted a cool pink background to enhance the lovely purples in his face and neck. Here's a process pic, almost at the half way point.

sides painted to match background.
