Common Firecrest ACEO in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one - everything just come together.

The Common Firecrest, is found in Europe and North Western Africa.  They are part of the kinglet family.  They measure around 9cm in length and weigh between 4 - 7 grams.

Common Firecrest measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Ron Knight for the reference photo.
