Striated Pardalote ACEO in acrylics

This one was fun to paint.  There are four subspecies of the striated pardalote - yellow tipped pardalote , the striated pardalote, the Eastern striated or red tipped pardalote  and Blacked headed pardalote. Both male and female birds have similar plumage.

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

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
