Eversmann's Redstart ACEO in acrylics

This one was fun to paint  - everything just worked and I am pleased with the final painting.

Eversmann's Redstart are also known as Rufous - Backed Redstart and breed in the mountains of Central Asia and Southern Siberia.  They are one of the larger redstarts measuring between 15 to 16 cm in length.

Eversmann's Redstart measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Ron Knight for reference photo.
