Humming Bird ACEO in acrylics

This one was fun to paint.  I did have to paint it twice though.  First time round I wasn't happy with the neck feathers - they just looked to flat and lifeless - tried fixing them but in the end I decided to start again.  Much happier with them the second time around.

Humming Bird measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Jennie Norris for the reference photo.
