Study of Hummingbird Flight - SOLD

A couple of weeks ago while at the farm, I was awake and up early with the house to myself. After breakfast, I picked up my sketchbook and the colored pencils given me at Christmastime. The previous two blog posts were two of my studies. This Hummingbird was another, and there are two more still to show. It's very important to keep drawing and sketching quickly in freehand so as not to lose that skill. A quick study sometimes captures the essence, the very life, of a subject. I believe this is the real goal to reach for in daily painting.
