Hummingbird ACEO in acrylics

I have wanted to paint this one for ages.  I am really pleased with how it turned out - I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to paint the bird as it is really small but I used a number 2 rigger script brush and it worked perfectly.

Hummingbird measures 3.5 x 2 .5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Bill Thompson/USFWS for the reference photo.
