Seven Hummingbirds #03

Now the color begins!

I start to carefully add light washes as I grow the vines around the tree. My  job is to layout where the vine and blossoms will grow around the branches fitting around the hummingbirds without distracting from them. There needs to be  plenty of the birght orange and red honeysuckle blossoms for the birds to be getting their nectar from.  begin washes I know it is hard to see from this faraway shot so I am adding close ups to help with seeing the details.

Lower section. putting the vines with it’s blossoms, all the leaves, helps me to see the hummingbird action better.

Middle section. The birds are able to be more formally rendered in the sketches as I get the foliage going. It is all a flexible and creative journey.

Top section, I love the freedom of growing my vine as I go. this drives some artists crazy but I love it.
