Hummingbird in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one.  One thing I do really like about the gessobord panel compared to the canvas panel is the smooth surface as it allows me to get  a more mottled background affect.   Also helps using the different brand of professional white acrylic paint to my normal brand which can be reopen with water so it does pay to experiment with different brands to find the right combination that works.

Hummingbird 2 measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord panel.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
