Rainbow Bee Eater ACEO in acrylics

I have had this one printed out for ages to paint. Just wasn't sure if I would be able to paint it in such a small format. I used the no 2 rigger brush which worked perfectly. Really pleased with how the painting turned out.

These birds can be found around Australia except in Tasmania. They are a medium size bird ranging from 21 - 28 cm in length and weigh around 27 grams.

Many thanks to James Niland for the reference photo.

Rainbow Bee Eater measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
