White Fronted Bee - Eater ACEO in acrylics

Really pleased with this one - everything just seemed to work. Since my new brushes arrive last month, I have found I have been using a  combination of the No 2 rigger brush and a No 4 pointed round brush when painting the little bird paintings.  The no 4 pointed round has a slighter longer point compared to the No 3 round that I usually use and it works rather well for the details.

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.
