White Fronted Bee Eater ACEO in acrylics

I used a different brush to paint this one  - my trusty no 3 round brush is not holding its point so I used a no 2 rigger instead.  It actually works really well so it is a good substitute.   I must  order some more brushes from the UK - they were closed over Christmas so will have to wait until the New Year to place my order. 

The White Fronted Bee Eater is found across Sub - equatorial Africa.   They measure around 21.5 - 23.5 cm in length and weigh between 28 - 38 grams.

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

Many thanks to Derek Keats for the reference photo.
