Cedar Waxwing ACEO in acrylics

This ones background also proved to be problematic.  I decided to try something different and make it more like grass reeds in the background.  Will that didn't  work - the background was too busy and was distracting attention away from the bird.  Fortunately I was able change it without having to start over again.

Cedar Waxwings are found North and Central America.  They are about 15 - 18 cm in length and weigh around 30 grams.

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