Spotted Pardalote ACEO in acrylics

I have painted a few of these birds before and just love their colouring and spots.  Really pleased with how this one turned out.

Spotted Pardalotes is one of Australia's smallest birds being only 8 to 10 cm in length.  They weigh on average 8 grams.

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

Many thanks to Wayne Butterworth for the reference photo.
