Wren ACEO in acrylics

I have had this one printed out for ages to paint but I was thinking about what colours I would use to paint a predominately brown bird.  I ended up using Transparent Yellow, Alizarine crimson, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber and Burnt Umber + white.  It worked really well.

Wren measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Frank Vassen for the reference photo.
