Canada Warbler ACEO in acrylics

This is another one that I have had printed out for ages to paint.  Really pleased how it turned out.  Tried out a new colour "Arylamide Yellow Light " that I got  last week.  Rather like it  - it is similar to cadmium yellow but it is semi-transparent and not as yellow as transparent yellow.

The Canada Warbler is a small songbird.  They are across Canada, east of the Rockies and in the Eastern United States.  They measure around 12 - 15 cm in length and weigh between 9 - 13 grams.

Canada Warbler measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago and Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
