Shining Bronze Cuckoo ACEO in acrylics

I am really pleased how this one turned out. The only problem I was having was my paints kept drying out too fast - will be glad when winter arrives - makes painting in acrylics a lot easier.

The Shining Bronze Cuckoo is the worlds smallest cuckoo measuring only 15 - 17 cm long.  They can be found around Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Island and Vanuatu.

Shining Bronze Cuckoo measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to James Niland for the reference photo.
