I love the colouring of this ones feathers. I used quite a few glazes to build up the depth to the feathers. There are a few colours that I only ever use once in while and for this one I decided to use a premixed green (sap green) for the green feathers - normally I mix my own greens. It worked rather well as it is a more intense and transparent so it was ideal for glazing.
Forest Double Collared Sunbird measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Suede Paper.
