On Sunday's post I showed the beginnings from the sketch to getting it up on my easel and working on the background...today, it's finished as best I could [the bird being so small, and the hard copy I had made --well, let's just say a lot of times I found myself looking through a magnifying glass to see more detail---never COULD see his feet clearly] and I matted it and framed it---

[I titled it "A Bird's Eye View"]


  1. Very nice! I'd say you did an excellent job of painting that little fellow - the mat and frame work perfectly, too.

  2. wow! this is great :) Is it watercolor?

  3. march on....yes, it's watercolor.

  4. Annie your art is amazing. I especially love this birds eye view water color.

  5. Perfect for a Ruby Tuesday. Well done. Thanks for stopping by Driller's Place.

  6. wow! what a talent! you are certainly an artist Anni. I am envious. Honestly, I don't know how to draw even on just a piece of paper..hu hu hu. Happy RT.

  7. Love this, Anni! It is beautiful!

  8. Well done. Are you self taught, or have you taken lessons?

    Have a great day, Anni - looks like another sunny morning here in Colorado - finally. We'll see if it can last all day!

  9. Lovely. Makes me miss painting... (I used to dabble a bit but after an accident a decade ago had difficulties gripping a pen or brush so haven't kept it up.)

  10. wow...its soooo lovely... i love it really...

    here to visit you back =)

  11. I remembered you were going to post this today and I scrolled down on my follow list until I found you! And it was worth the wait- great job! I am in admiration of those of you who can turn a white canvas into something of beauty!

  12. These is very pretty Anni. You are very talented!!

  13. Anni, Nice job--isn't painting such a wonderful hobby. I would think very relaxing (well, except when the painting isn'turning out the way you want it to and it becomes frustrating)!! I know we have a few hummingbirds around but we just don't see them very often. I love the shells in the previous post-- your photos are so clear and sharp. Liked your "review" of the movie too--haven't seen it yet but I will soon. Have a terrific day. Mickie :)

  16. ooh very pretty. I love hummingbirds.

  17. Very good, Anni, I like it! Hummingbird feet are so small, it's hard to see them no matter what!

    Have a wonderful day,

  18. Love it,Anni...gorgeous! The frame makes your painting more beautiful...

  19. Wish I have your talent, that's gorgeous!

  20. Very nice ! congratulations !!

  21. Great job....you do have talent!

  22. Is it that simple to paint a hummingbird? Well, then, I'll give it a try!


    A splash of red or a dash of blue—
    Which is the color that’s just for you?

    A hint of blue or a tint of red—
    Which of these colors goes to your head?

    Of all the colors under the sun,
    Red is simply my favorite one!
