Ocotillo Ballerina

Ocotillo Ballerina
5 x 7
Colored Pencil on
Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper
This little beauty is another in flight hummingbird enjoying a species of Ocotillo. Thank you to Michael Searcy for the inspiration! I'm hoping this one (and Ocotillo Acrobat from yesterday) are a bit "looser" and give more movement to these amazing creatures.  

Colored pencil is a new medium for me and I'm enjoying the possibilities with them. Their portability and cleanliness when traveling is fantastic! My new travel buddies!

The four humminbirds make a lovely set together. I'm very pleased with how they turned out framed.
