Klimt's Hummingbird

This one just didn't work. I figured out why--it needed a lot more running off the edges, and the rooster worked a lot better because it had much more interesting (and much less) negative space and the big hunk of black as an anchor.

Oh well, live and learn. I hate it when a painting fails. This one is up on ebay, starting at a buck, because I want it out of my studio and my misery pronto.

I think its beautiful! Sometimes just staring at things as the creator of the piece kinda gives you a different opinion than what other people see so I hope someone bought it and loves it!

While you may not have achieved exactly the effect you were intending it's still a lovely piece of art in and of itself. The detailing in the textures and layers of colour is exquisite - bravo! *heads for Ebay in case it's still available*

It may not work as a Klimt style painting, but don't write it off completely, I think it looks pretty and the negative space here is fine.

Hummingbirds are beautiful birds

I dunno... I like humming birds reguardless of their symmetry.

What an aorable woodpecker! It's so realistic, but at the same time, kind of softly cartoony! I love!!

Didn't work? Are you kiddin'? I love it!! :D Much more than rooster to be completely honest ;) Your work is great!

If this is your idea of "misery" then I'm a bit afraid/excited to see what perfection would be. Or even just mediocrity.

Well, i guess you have the right to judge your own work. And i have the right to disagree with you. And there it is on ebay tonight for $101...plus shipping...sigh...like anything of mine would fetch more than a dollar ninety eight...so quitcher whinin' miss more talent in her little finger than my whole body. And keep doing your excellent work...as long as you're having fun.

I agree with you that it falls short of a Klimt like piece, but isnt totally lacking in aesthetic quality. It's very lovely as a piece on its own

Maybe crop the back of the hummingbird - so he's coming more onto the page rather than being stationary there - that way it'll look a bit more like he's flying into the picture pane.

very pretty. I like the soft colors and the hummingbird is just very lifelike
