Yellow Crowned Bishop ACEO in acrylics

The other day I bought I new acrylic colour - Australian Olive Green by Derivan.  It is a lovely green and quite handy to have when painting landscapes or backgrounds as you can darken it with blue/red or lighten it with yellow / white.  The background for this one is the Olive Green plus white and a touch of purple and it worked really well to create a more subdued background. Really pleased with how this one turned out.

The Yellow Crowned Bishop is found in Africa south the Sahara. They are about 9.5 - 10.5 cm in length and weight around 15 grams.

Yellow Crowned Bishop measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm Smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to  Michael Pazzani for the reference photo.
