Red Capped Robin in acrylics

This is another one of our Australian Robin's.  The red-capped robin is the smallest red robin and it can be found in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.  He was rather fun to paint.  I ended up just using my no 3 round brush to paint the bird - works rather well as I can get a good point for the finer detail.

Red-Capped Robin measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Ron Knight for the reference photo.
