Draw-a-Bird Day: short crested coquette

A haiku and a hummingbird drawing…

I consulted with the Oracle about this tiny (3″) Mexican hummingbird, one of many of the endangered bird species of the world.  Less than 1000 are estimated to exist.

I did my first sketch, above, in colored pencil, but felt the colors lacked enough vibrancy, so I painted the top one with my metallic watercolors.

Flowers grow feathered
wings humming bird poetry
air breathes spiritsong

  1. Absolutely gorgeous, and so glad to learn about the endangered Mexican hummingbird. And I am going to have to catch up on my painting because I had not heard of the metallic watercolors, and that is my favorite medium. I have not done watercolors for awhile, so no wonder I am not familiar with them, but I am going to try to find some and take a good look. What a difference it makes. Thank you kindly.
