Three, Key, Bumblebee

Portrait of a Bee Hummingbird.  Oil painting on masonite

Portrait of a Bee Hummingbird. Oil painting on masonite. 9×12 inch original painting by joyce brandon.

The Bee Hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world.  Males are just over 2 inches long – this piece shows the little bird’s actual size in relation to the domino & the key.  These Cuban hummingbirds are becoming increasingly rare as their habitat is destroyed for development.

The colors in this photo, taken in natural light, are true to the painting – the WIP image below is more yellow/orange due to being taken in artificial light after the sun had already gone down.
