I loved painting this bird. I decided to paint it in oils. These robins can be found in the coolest parts of south-eastern Australia as well as in Tasmania. They are about 12 - 14 cm long. I have a few other Australian birds lined up to paint in the larger format as opposed to the aceo's - I will paint some in oils and others in acrylics on paper.
Flame Robin measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord panel.
Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
