Golden Crowned Kinglet ACEO in acrylics

I couldn't resist painting this one - just love the position this little guy is sitting on the branch.

These little birds are found across Canada, North eastern and western United states, Mexico and Central America.  They are measure around 8 to 11 cm in length and weight on average 5.9 grams.  An interest fact about this little bird is that it routinely winters in areas where the night time temperatures goes below -40C.

Golden Crowned Kinglet measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
