Monday's Child Is Fair Of Face

I've been trying to photograph the hummingbirds the past few days with my big camera. It's a real challenge! Even though they are not as sharp as I would like them to be and I've got lots of quality issues, my images will be fine for drawing and painting reference. I'll be posting ones I like for various reasons, like wonderful hummingbird gestures! 

"Monday's Child" is a traditional fortune telling song and Nursery Rhyme that dates back to the early 1800's.  I am going to use the poem as my theme this week and post a new "child" each day!  What day of the week were you born?

Please feel free to sketch and or paint from my photos here on for this week's Hummingbird Sketching Challenge.

  1. I sit outside on a daily basis trying to take photos of our hummingbirds. I've yet to get a good clear photograph unless they are sitting. Look forward to your hummingbird gestures. Beautiful sketch with a feel of motion.
