Inspirational watercolor experience in the comfort of your own home.

Why a hummingbird? I’m most often asked how to paint watercolor hummingbirds because they are most amazing creatures. Hummingbirds have incredible speed and agility. They flap their tiny wings so fast that each wing travels in a figure 8 pattern or some say an infinity symbol. It’s because of this that hummingbirds seam to defy the laws of time.

That’s why hummingbirds are a symbol of eternity, continuity, and infinity. Although not many people consciously know that, the hummingbird is a cherished symbol of lost loved ones and their everlasting peace in the afterlife. Painting this hummingbird is to honor something that isn’t temporary and time bound. That is inspiring!

Hi, I am Joel Wright! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I appreciate your interest in my art courses here at Udemy. I am happy you are here!

I love meeting new people so make sure and introduce yourself in one of my painting and creativity workshops.

I learned to paint just like you. By watching others and copying work that I really love.

I've been creating artwork since childhood. It's that pure childish outlook on painting that I keep close to me. You see as adults we overcomplicate things. But if you watch a child draw, paint or color you will see a fresh stream of flowing expression. Without doubt or excessive thinking theres no limits to what we can do.

Talent is a myth. We ALL have the inner creative space to create amazing artwork. If I am helpful at anything its helping you find your own source of creativity by creating fun, fast, and easy courses that you can do at your own pace and in your own home.
