Olive Backed Sunbird ACEO in Acrylics

I enjoyed painting this one - love its colouring. The Olive Backed Sunbird is also known as the Yellow Bellied Sunbird.  They are a small honeyeater like bird and are about 12 cm long. They are found in much of coastal Queensland and are also found in Coastal New Guinea and parts of South East Asia

Olive Backed Sunbird measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to James Niland for the reference photo.
