Macaw ACEO in acrylics

I love the vibrant colours of this parrot.  Everything just worked with this one.

Macaw's are native to Central America.  There are 17 species of macaw's and this one would be a blue and gold macaw.  They measure around 76 - 86 cm in length and weigh between 900 to 1500 grams.

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

Many thanks to Mary Dolling for the reference photo.
