Scarlet Robin ACEO in acrylics

I took a break from painting bird ACEO's for a few months but decided to paint a few at the end of December to see if I wanted to get back into painting them each week. The short answer is probably not  - I will probably just paint a few every now and again but not regular.  I do have a lot of off cuts of  paper which are the perfect size for ACEO's so I might play around with painting more ACEO landscapes. 

Scarlet Robin ACEO measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

Worm Eating Warbler in acrylics

This one was rather fun to paint.   It always a bit more tricky painting feathers that are all the same colour and ended up doing quite a few glazes to get the depth to the feathers.
