White - Browed Tit Warbler ACEO acrylics

I love the colours of this bird feathers. I don't normally use magenta but that was the colour needed for the feathers.  I had a bit of a problem with the background -  wasn't happy with it so decided to try something different - I used a old bristle brush to scrub in a mottled effect for the background - really pleased with the effect it created. 

White - Browed Tit Warblers (also known as Severtzov's Tit Warbler) are a tiny bird measuring only 8.5 - 10 cm.  They are found on the mountains of China and central Asia, and also in parts of the Himalaya.

White - Browed Tit Warbler measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Ron Knight for the reference photo.
