I recently attended a fabulous workshop with the amazing artist Julie Longdon shes a brilliant tutor, very informative, I learned a great deal about everything, approach, media and materials

I used to do a lot of work in pencil and watercolour, so I was keen to give it another try after some twenty years!
I've finally completed it some weeks later, held up by a bit of shoulder surgery
   completing the under wing, tail and flowers, the hummingbird body was done in the class
I'm so pleased with it as I've always stayed away from drawing animals and people, so its really given me a boost to try more 

Please do check out Julies work, her work is mind blowing how she captures, feathers and fur is incredible Click here for her website

The hummingbird is quite small aprximatly 5' in length and it was coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos 


  1. Stunning work! You're a very talented artist and I love your work.

  2. Oh wow Jools this is a beautiful painting with amazing details and colour. You have done a superb job with it. Hope the surgery went well and is healing quickly xxx

  3. This is quite a stunning piece, Jools!! I am in love with hummingbirds, and you have captured their beauty and magic superbly.

  4. Beautifully colored - really gorgeous!
