Spot Breasted Parrotbill ACEO in acrylics

I love the position this one is sitting on the branch - really pleased with how it turned out.

Spot Breasted Parrotbill's are also known as White-throated Parrotbill or Rufous-headed Parrotbill.  They are found in China, India, Bangladesh, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.  They measure around 18 - 22 cm in length weigh between 28 - 40 grams.

Spot Breasted Parrotbill 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.
