Little Wren ACEO in Acrylics

I photographed this little wren a few years ago when visiting Canberra. They move so quickly so it is rather difficult to get a good shot.  I am very happy  how this one turned out.  I thought it would be difficult to paint it this small but I actually found it ok - just used small brushes.  Also it was easier to do a wash first for the background  and then  paint the little wren once the background had dried.

Little Wren measures 2.5 inches x 3,5 inches and is painting on 300gsm Arches Smooth Watercolour Paper.
