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.
