View Full Version : New Painting "May Flowers"
11-27-2009, 01:27 PM
Here is the next piece in my seasons series. It is a hummingbird during a Canadian Spring.
Again it is 4" x 12" acrylic
The humming bird itself was painted with help from the ref library. I took several liberties with it but still referred to the bird.
cc always welcome

Beautiful colors and lighting, Ian. I love how you've done the background. The only tiny nit I would have would be to blur the wings a bit to give the hummingbird more of a sense of movement. Awesome work!

Nice work Ian!!!!:thumbsup:
Nice light touch with this piece, I really like how you mangaed the light coming through the wings..

Thanks so much. I may do that with the wings. Ill take another look.

Beautifully done, and I do love the background. It has a very welcoming feel and rather wistful feel, the longing not the vague part of that word's definition. I really like this one.

Lovely work, you really captured spring in the air (which I'm longing for now.)

Thanks again! I think the background shows some movement.....it seems to take you through the painting.
Beautiful work and format.

How many ways can a person say "gorgeous"! I especially like it in light of Michigan's dreary November days.

Nice Work! Love the way the background dissolves bringing all the focus to the foreground.

Very pretty - and lovely light throughout. Lyrical :)
It's an interesting format Ian - particularly a series in that.
Are they on canvas or do you frame them? - I'd be interested in seeing a pic of one (or more) framed:D

Love it Ian!! Beautiful colors, great background!!

Thank you everyone. These will be framed, but I painted them more for reproduction reasons. I am planning on releasing them as a giclee series, which can be matted, displaying all of them nicely within one frame or separately. They are small enough that you can do that........I am hoping.

A beautiful painting! I love the format and your attention to the detail. The soft focus in the background is just a perfect finish!:thumbsup:
