Eastern Yellow Robin ACEO in acrylics

I love the position this robin is sitting on the branch. I played around a bit with mixing the grey feather colours - ended up using mixtures / combinations of Phthalo Blue / Ultramarine Blue / transparent yellow / Permanent Alizarin /  Burnt Umber + white  - the combinations  created some rather lovely  greys.

Eastern Yellow Robins are rather inquisitive and  confident around us  and have been known to take handouts of food from picnickers.

Eastern Yellow Robin 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.
