Draw A Bird Day, April 2019

Each year we look forward to the return of our hummingbirds sometime this month, hopefully within the next week or two. I started putting out nectar already in case we have any early arrivals, but so far we’ve not seen any.

Even though some artists draw a bird on the 8th of each month, today is the official yearly Draw A Bird Day! Do you feed your yard birds? Have you had any hummers yet?

PS: I was really happy with the loose effect achieved in this painting. Why is it that sometimes it is a struggle but other times it rolls right off the brush? I’ll take the win when I can πŸ™‚

  1. Your hummingbird is beautiful, Carol! πŸ’— I love how you painted it. My husband got me a hummingbird calendar for Christmas as he knows how much I love them. I look forward to their arrival also! 😊

  2. I love the greens!
    I don’t get hummingbirds, but I’m still waiting for the robins! The sparrows are always plentiful, and blue jays and cardinals. But no robins yet…(K)
