Yellow Thornbill ACEO in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one  - everything just worked.  Really pleased with the final painting.

Yellow Thornbills are found in the Eastern States of Australia from the bottom half of Queensland, most of New South Wales, all of Victoria and parts of South Australia.  They are around 10 cm in length and weigh on average 6 grams.

Yellow Thornbill measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
