Using my completed painting or the attached photo below as a reference, lightly sketch in the outline of the hummingbird and some loose background shapes such as leaves, branches and flowers. If you're feeling adventurous, make it your own, by changing the colours of the hummingbird and background!
Using the tips and techniques shown in the tutorial, create your own painting of a hummingbird.
