Red Billed Leiothrix ACEO in acrylics

I love how this one is perched on the branch.  It was a bit more tricky to paint due to the different angle it is perched on the branch but I was up for the challenge.


Red Billed Leiothrix are native to China and the Himalayas.  They were introduced to quite a few countries including Hawaiian Islands in 1918. They measure around 14 - 15 cm in length and weigh between 18 - 28 grams.  They are known by quite a few names including Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale and Japanese Robin.

Red Billed Leiothrix measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

Many thanks to Alan Schmierer for the reference photo.
