Flame Robin in oils

I loved painting this bird. I decided to paint it in oils.  These robins can be  found in the coolest parts of south-eastern Australia as well as in Tasmania.  They are about 12 - 14 cm  long.   I have a few other Australian birds lined up to paint in the  larger format as opposed to the aceo's - I will paint some in oils and others in acrylics on paper.

Flame Robin measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord panel.

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
