New nymph painting – Melia

Hi all, I’ve finally managed to upload my nymph painting, she is Melia, a wood nymph who lives in a remote northern ash forest. She is quite surprised to see a hummingbird flying around and wonders about the far away tropical lands from which it came.

I guess that the if I had made the hummingbird smaller and moved it in a bit I could have fit the wings in, but I’ve never drawn or painted a hummingbird before so wanted to keep it as big as possible.
The painting was made using neocolor II water-soluble crayons, acrylic paint and painted paper cuts.
