Just wrapping up the "Alphabet Mini Painting Challenge" this month, these two images show the oil paintings I did for the letter "Y" and yesterday's letter "X". The "common yellow-throated warbler" was a fun little painting I did on a 6x6" deep gallery wrapped canvas. I thought it would look good on a bright colored red background to show off such a pretty colored "bird."
Yesterday's challenge was the letter "X". I painted an "Xantus" Hummingbird. They are different looking than what I get in by own backyard, but interesting birds. They are a "Mexican Hummingbird." It was a little difficult to find a bird that began with the letter "X" so I am just happy I found one. This one is painted in oil on a 4x4" canvas panel.
There is only one more to go in the challenge for me, the letter "Z". Several of the artists have already finished the challenge, but I am running about 2 days behind. There is one or two others that are also working on the remainder of their paintings. It was a fun little summer motivational project, but it is time to get down to some serious work now.
