Miriam’s Art is pleased to show you her Hummingbird and Water Droplets WIP (work in progress) pastel painting. It was painted at times of relative calm. Enjoy!
The different paper (U-Art 400 series) lends more to a blending of colors that I thought would best portray the luminescence of the water and the water droplets. I haven’t painted in the smaller water droplets yet that will come later. I love the look of the hummingbird. I still have to work the whole painting. The waters not quite right and I have to add some defining touches to the bird. But I am enjoying it. The reason I am painting this particular image is because of the luminescence on the water and the droplets. They have always intrigued me and now I try to put that awe onto paper. I hope that I’ll be successful.
I could have rushed to have this ready for Saturday posting but then thought better of it. So here you have the WIP photo. I will post the finished photo when the painting is done. I was too busy doing my warriors mask and redesigning my sword and shield. LOL. But you can’t rush art. I would have ruined the painting.
Using 400 series U-Art paper takes more pastel chalk. It takes a lot more because the surface of the paper is rough.
