Blue Waxbill ACEO in acrylics

Love the blue feathers of this one.

The Blue Waxbill is estrildid finch found in Southern Africa.  They measure around 12 cm in length and weigh between 8 - 13 grams.

Blue Waxbill 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.
