Lori Bentley week #31

Costas Hummingbird

Who knew that this bird even existed. I do not do justice to the feathers, the blueish purple ones looking like metallic scales in contrast to the fluff of the body. But everything has to be tried out :)

Colours used: ultramarine, dioxizine purple and indigo for the blue/purple feathers and terre vert for the shadows on the fluff. I think this is a bird I will revisit sometime.
