Yellow Tufted Honeyeater ACEO in acrylics

I love the colouring of this bird.  Everything just worked with this one and I am really pleased with the final painting.

The Yellow - Tufted Honeyeater is found on  the eastern and south eastern Mainland Australia.  They range between 10 - 12 cm in length and weigh on average 22 grams.

Yellow Tufted Honeyeater measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Patrick Kavanagh for the reference photo.
