Puerto Rican Tody ACEO in acrylics

I enjoyed painting this one.  This birds are found on Puerto Rica Island. It is known locally by the locals as San Pedrito which means Little Saint Peter.  They have an average body length of 11cm and weigh about 5 - 6 grams.

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

Many thanks to Ron Knight for the reference photo.
