Hummingbird Angel

Angel Reference

We never expected the incredible response to the angel I did for a Christmas present last month. Many of you said, “PAINT MORE!” So here we go. I was talking with Jack and asked him who we know I could use for a model. He turned to me and pointed. Looking behind me I said, “Who????????”

“Yes, you! Go get the camera and we’ll take some pictures.”

I’m using the face and right arm from the photo on the left. The left arm is from the picture on the right. I decided on a closer view to highlight the hummingbirds.

The background sky and clouds are painted first, then I begin working on the angel’s wings.

The hair is painted with mixes in different proportions of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Yellow Medium + White. I pull out a special color, Terra Rosa, to use for the skin tones. A touch of Cadmium Red Light is added for the rosy cheeks. A Little MUD is mixed in for the shadows. The edge of the jaw is rounded with a bit of Cerulean Blue. To see this or any of the other pictures larger just click on the image.

After painting the flowers it’s time to start on the Hummingbirds. These wonderful little birds are so delightful to watch and especially fun to paint.

I believe all gardens have Angels. And this one is particularly special, she is a guardian of Hummingbirds. They happily congregate around her armful of fresh flowers. I just wonder what she and that gem-like little Ruby Throat are talking about, don’t you?

    Hi Mikki & Jack, Wishing you the very Best this new year. This comment is the only way I know of to tell you (can’t find an email add) that your gift before Christmas about selling on Ebay has been put to GOOD use. I’m doing exactly what was recommended and already I’ve sold 6 or more. I know I haven’t made any money but I feel confident your gift will make it happen this year.
    Thank you for your generosity, Sue Furrow
