American Goldfinch ACEO in acrylics

I couldn't resist painting this cute fellow - just love the way he is positioned on the branch.  This one is in his winter plumage - in spring he will molt and be a vibrant yellow.

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

Many thanks to Rodney Campbell for the reference photo.
