AMERICAN GOLDFINCH AND HUMMINGBIRD
When it comes to paintings and drawings, every artist comes to a point and time when they need inspiration. Bird paintings are popular in the art world and they offer a glance at some of the most beautiful birds known to man. In this article, you will be able to learn about some of the most common birds found in the Americas and hopefully you will be able to gain some inspiration on your next drawing or painting.
The American Goldfinch is a small bird that is native to North America. The goldfinch is also called the Wild Canary and the Eastern Goldfinch. The goldfinch is a bird that constantly migrates back and forth between Mexico and Canada. The goldfinch is actually known as a residential bird. They love to hang around bird feeders so they are a common bird found in the neighborhood. Their vibrant colors make them very easy to distinguish among other birds in America.
The American Goldfinch makes for a beautiful painting or drawing. The goldfinch ranges in colors, from bright canary yellow to a light tan color. They also have shades of white and black on their feathers. As far as inspiration for your painting, since they are commonly seen near bird feeders, you may want to paint your goldfinch with a bird feeder. Trees and flowers are a common choice in bird paintings as well. You may want to insert some trees and flowers that are native to America in your painting.
The hummingbird is quite the unique bird and commonly seen in America. Hummingbirds are able to flap their wings up to 70 times a second. They are among the smallest birds in the world. They are the only birds that are able to fly backwards. Hummingbirds come in a variety of different species. Hummingbirds are always on the go, looking for food and burning energy at a high rate. Their heart can actually beat over 1,200 times in a single minute. Because they use so much energy up, they are literally always hours away from death.
Hummingbirds make a great choice when it comes to paintings and drawings. Since there are a large variety of different species, the hummingbird can be portrayed in a vast variety of different colors. They are perfect for painting and drawing. You can be creative with your colors when it comes to the hummingbird. Just as the goldfinch, hummingbirds love bird feeders because it is an easy meal. They are very likely to stay around if there is a reliable food source.
CARDINAL AND BALTIMORE ORIOLE
The beautiful Northern Cardinal is one of the most common North American birds found in the United States. They can be found all over North America and in parts of South America. Male cardinals have the bright red feathers and the female cardinal has dull red feathers. The males use their bright red colors for mating purposes. The cardinal can be seen at all times during the year.
The bright red colors of the Northern Cardinal make for a great painting or drawing. Most cardinal paintings portray the cardinal on tree limbs or wooden fences during the winter. The bright red colors really stand out when you have snow in the background. If you wanted to add a little color in your painting, you may want to add a few pine trees. Of course, it is your painting and you can do what you want. These are just a few ideas to get the ball rolling.
The Baltimore Oriole is a great choice to paint or draw as well. The Baltimore Oriole can be found in Northern America and in the Northeast. It can also be found in Mexico, Central America, and in Northwest South America. As you may already know, the Baltimore Oriole is the state bird of Maryland. For those that don't know, Baltimore is a city in Maryland. The Baltimore Oriole received its name because the colors that were used in the coat-of-arms of Lord Baltimore.
As a painting, the Baltimore Oriole is a perfect subject. The Baltimore Oriole has different color shades of orange, black, white, and gray. Since the Baltimore Oriole is a migrant bird, you can find paintings of them in all four seasons. Personally, I believe they look great in summer and winter backgrounds. The colors of fall are nearly the same colors as the Baltimore Oriole, so they don't look quite right. If you can add enough greenery and have the fall colors as a background, it can be pulled off.
