Belted Kingfisher in acrylics

I decided to try out the 8 x 8 inch panels that I purchased with this lovely kingfisher.  Rather like this size  for the larger birds.  Really pleased how this one turned out.  Working on a 8 x 8 lion head at the moment so will see how it goes.

These kingfishers are found Northern United States and Canada.  They measure around 25 - 35 cm in length and weigh between 113 to 178 grams.  The male only has the blue breast band as opposite to the female who also has a broad rusty band on their bellies.

Belted Kingfisher measures 8 x 8 inches and is painted on Raymar 1/8" Smooth Portrait Canvas panel.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
