Scarlet Honeyeater in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one.  It is the smallest honeyeater in Australia with the male being only  10 - 11 cm long.  It can be found on the east coast of Australia, Indonesia and New Caledonia. 

Scarlet Honeyeater measures 6 x 4 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to James Niland for the reference photo.
