Yellow Rumped Warbler in acrylics

I love the colouring and markings of this bird and I really pleased with the final painting. 

An interesting fact about the Yellow Rumped Warbler is that it is the only warbler able to digest waxed found in the bayberries and wax myrtles.  They are found across North America and are about 12 - 14 cm in length and weigh between 12 - 13 grams.

Yellow Rumped Warbler measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Raymar's feather lite canvas panel.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
