Eastern Towhee ACEO in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one.  Just all seemed to come together.

Yesterday was rather hot again but  a storm built up so it cooled everything down last night.   Today is not too bad - not so hot that I have to run the air conditioner.

Eastern Towhee's are breed across Eastern North America and migrate down southern United States.  They belong to the sparrow species and their length ranges from 17 - 23 cm.

Eastern Towhee measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Bill Thompson/USFWS for the reference photo.
