Pink Robin ACEO in acrylics

I couldn't wait to  paint the Pink Robin I saw at Liffey Falls so here he is. They are not found in Queensland - they are only found in south-eastern Australia and are listed as Vulnerable in New South Wales. They are a lovely little bird - I was really lucky to have come back to the car park just when he was admiring himself in the car's side mirror otherwise I wouldn't have got any reference photos.  They move too quickly in the forest.

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