Crimson Chat ACEO in acrylics

I had paint left over from painting the Scarlet robin, so I decided to paint this one as it used the same colours.  An interesting fact about this bird is that  they normally just eat insects but they do have a brush tipped tongue and have been  seen taking nectar from flowers / trees.

Crimson Chat measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Ron Knight for the reference photo.
