Hummingbirds - Marquetry by amazoncanvas Hummingbirds - Marquetry by amazoncanvas
The background with streaks of various colors comes from our common wood specie call Poplar, but rare when it contains colors like this one. Laurel Burl is an exotic wood specie I used for the green leaves, when carefully positioned it can be effective for rendering leaves, branches and even fabric as seen in my other work - Afternoon Delight.

This artwork is made by cutting and gluing exotic, natural wood veneers together.

D'oh! By "here," I meant Traditional Arts/Miscellaneous, not Daily Deviations--where I'm not AT ALL surprised it belongs.

Amazing, delicate work!

Didn't expect to see marquetry here rather than in the Artisan Crafts/Woodworking area, but it certainly works either way.

I love poplar. I always find it so sad to have to spray colored lacquer over a gorgeous piece of green and purple and navy blue. This is really quite beautiful.

Well done! I work in leather here, but my main work in the past has been woodworking. I am amazed at what art can be done in Marquetry!

Breathtaking! I don't know much about the style of art, but you did an amazing job selecting the wood for textural components (I can't imagine it would be easy to find "just the right piece").

Beautiful! I love the textures you get from the wood. I also feel like the colors give a warm, muted quality to your typical spring colors - it's sort of cozy C: Excellent details on the feathers.

This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL marquetry work. I mean really. My dad does this sort of thing as a hobby, he's lost entire weekends just losing himself in woodwork but I've never seen him do something of this quality. This is impressive and absolutely gorgeous.
