Artistically explore one of the most beautiful and charming inhabitants of the Sonoran Desert, the hummingbirds. We begin our class with a very brief introduction to the natural history of the hummingbirds of the Sonoran Desert. Next learn quick watercolor strategies to help you capture their brilliant shimmering colors and learn to express their myriad textures, from soft feathers of the chest and rigid flight feathers of the wings to their bright shiny eyes, in watercolor and just a little bit of gouache.
