Summer bird watercolors

A few summery bird watercolors added to my bird gallery this morning.

Snowy Egret watercolor painting
A Snowy Egret watercolor, 15 x 10 inches.
These are always fun to spot during summers at the beach. This was based off one I saw at the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. I went for the green of the salt marsh as a background.

Killdeer watercolor
Killdeer, 8 x 10" watercolor
I always enjoy painting killdeer and plovers for the pop of orange in their eyes.

Hummingbird watercolor
Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Something a bit different for me, and not how you typically think of hummingbirds, but this was based on a hummingbird I watched at dusk who came to sit on a branch after feeding at a patch of native impatiens.
