White Breasted Nuthatch ACEO acrylics

I love the how these birds cling to tree trunks.  White Breasted Nuthatches are found across much of temperate Northern America.  They are about 13 - 14 cm long and range in weight from 18 - 30g.

Might be painting in oils tomorrow as it is meant to reach 35 degrees!! and my acrylic paints are drying rather fast on my palette. Or I might just run the air-conditioner instead - think we are in for a very hot summer. 

White Breasted Nuthatch measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.


Many thanks to USFWS for the reference photo.
