Cape May Warbler ACEO in acrylics

I enjoyed painting this little song bird.  An interesting fact about this bird is that it as an unique tongue that is curled and semi tubular which allows it to collect nectar during winter.

Cape May Warbler measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago and Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
