Rainbow Lorikeet in acrylics

I have wanted to paint a lorikeet for ages and I just love the position  this one is sitting on the log.  They are actually one bird that I often see around my suburb and they are a regular visitor to my garden - I am just never quick enough to grab my camera and get a good photo of them.

They measure are around 28 - 32 cm's in length and weigh around 133 grams.

Rainbow Lorikeet measures 8 x 6 inches and is painted on Raymar's Feather Light Smooth Portrait Cotton 1/16"  panel.

Many thanks to Wayne Butterworth for the reference photo.
