New Holland Honeyeater in acrylics

I couldn't resist painting this one.  Just love the position the bird is  sitting on the branch.   These birds are found throughout southern Australia from Brisbane to just North of Perth.  It is about 18 cm in length.

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

Many thanks to  Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
