I found this art idea at an art show a while ago and it's one of those things I filed away until the time is right. I've been itching to work at watercolor for a while now, so I sat down this morning and tried this idea out. It's a ruby-throated hummingbird study, with it's environment surrounding it in black ink. I'm quite pleased with the beginning work; so much so, that I went to Michael's and purchased a better quality water color paper and some masking fluid. I'd like to try this again when I'm not so rushed to get something out for inspiration for a kid's class....and do something just for me.
