Altamira Oriole ACEO in acrylics

I love the vibrant colourful orange feathers of this one. 

The Altamira Oriole is found in Mexico and Central America with a range that reaches into Southern Texas.  They measure around 21 - 25 cm in length and  weigh between 47 - 64 grams.

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

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