Oaxacan Hummingbird, Stage 5 COMPLETE!

^ The first couple of flower stems are colored.


^ Flower stems finished.


^ Shading the flowers begins with a complementary underpainting.


^ The flowers, referenced from Hummingbirds of Costa Rica, resemble chili peppers.


^ Coloring over the underpainting produces rich hues.


^ The Oaxacan Hummingbird is finished!


^ Compare my color palette prior to coloring the final piece...


^ ...to upon the Hummer's completion. I wore some of the pencils down to nubs.
