Nuthatch ACEO in acrylics

I just love the way these birds cling to trees.  They make for interesting paintings. This one is a Red Breasted Nuthatch and is found across western northern temperate North America and winters much across the US and southern Canada.

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

Many thanks to  Andy Reago and Chrissy McClarren  for the reference photo.
