Striated Pardalote ACEO in acrylics

I love the angle this little guy is perched on the branch.  I am really pleased how this one turned out - everything just seemed to work. 

Striated Pardalotes are found throughout Australia.  They measure between 8 - 10 cm in length and weigh on average 11 grams.

Striated Pardalote measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 30 gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
