This one was fun to paint. Love how he is perched on the tree stump. Rufous Whistlers are found around Mainland Australia as well as in New Caledonia. They measure around 16 - 18 cm and weigh about 25 grams.
Rufous Whistler measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
