Blue Grey Gnatcatcher ACEO in acrylics

So for my next aceo, I painted this little bird.  I had to use the Script brush again for this one and also for the warbler - I have placed my order for some more brushes so just have to wait for them to arrive from the UK. 

Blue Grey Gnatcatchers are a very small songbird that breeds in southern Ontario, Eastern and South Western US and Mexico.  They measure between 10 - 11 cm in length and weigh between 5 - 7 grams.

Blue Grey Gnatcatcher measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
