Long Tailed Tit ACEO in acrylics

I have had this one printed out for ages to paint and finally decided to paint it.  I actually have a pile of reference photos printed out - my problem is I keep finding more that I want to paint so I keep adding to the pile and some get forgotten until I go through pile and discover them again.

The Long Tailed Tit is also known as the Long-tailed Bushtit and is found throughout Europe and Asia. They measure between 13 - 15 cm in length which  includes its  7 - 9 cm tail.

Long Tailed Tit measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Gary Jones for the reference photo.
