The making of a hummingbird 4

I mount the watercolor paper with transferred drawing on a drawing board to anchor it.  That's the 300lb hot press Fabriano Artistico that I talked about yesterday.  So I put in just enough detail so that I can see what is going on but not too much that I can use some artistic license and creativity.  I lay the first washes in and I don't worry about the hard edges just yet, I can get rid of those later.
You really need to work up the entire piece and not get bogged down in details at this point.
