Ocotillo Acrobat

Ocotillo Acrobat
5 x 7
Colored Pencil on
Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper

Here's a foray into colored pencil hummingbirds in a bit of a looser format. I chose some hummingbirds in flight for this direction. I really enjoyed watching this little hummingbird working the ocotillo flowers in the morning at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens. Their arial stunts are amazing and I was so pleased to catch this little girl in a backwards balanced pose to taste this sweet treat! 

I'll have this little one and 3 others at the Wimberley Blue Hole Arts Festival this weekend. We'll see what potential collectors think of her!
