Boccioni: Hummingbird

Original hand-painted in gouache on acid-free watercolor paper.

Part of the Artist & Animal series, the artist of influence for this piece was Umberto Boccioni.  Hummingbirds are in constant rapid motion, which fit perfectly into the style of Futurism that Boccioni is known for.  Futurism was a style that shows the movement of modern life through bright colors and repeated triangular shapes.  Fractured pieces and lines that show movement help to create the feeling that the wings are moving quickly
