Painted Firetail ACEO in acrylics

This one also just worked.  I love it when painting just work.  These birds are found around the  arid and semi arid interior of Australia.  They measure around 11 cm in length and weight between 9.6 - 13 grams.

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


Many thanks to Jim Bendon for the reference photo.
