Black Crested Titmouse ACEO in acrylics

Really pleased with how this one turned out.  To create the grey feathers I mixed a combination of Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna plus white which work really well.

Black Crested Titmouse are also known as Mexican Titmouse.  They are found in Texas, Oklahoma and east-central  Mexico. They measure between 14 - 15 cm in length and weigh between 26 grams.

Black Crested Titmouse measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300g smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
