Red Capped Robin in acrylics

So for my next Australian bird, I painted  Red Capped Robin. Robins are another one of my favourite birds - they are just so colourful.  Rather like the background that I created - went for a two tone effect - I think it works rather well. 

Red Capped Robin  measures 4 x 6  inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
