Grey Fantail ACEO in acrylics

I love the position this bird is sitting on the branch and I am  really please with how the final painting turned out.  These birds are found throughout Australia and measure around 14 - 16 cm in length, of which half of it is their tail.  They weigh around 9 grams.

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

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
