Northern Cardinals in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting these two.  I used quite a few glazes to get   depth and colour to the feathers. For the male cardinal, I used a red glaze over yellow/white for the highlighted areas which work really well.

Northern Cardinal (Female) measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
