Blue Manakin ACEO in acrylics

I love colours of this birds feathers.  I used a few glazed to get depth and colour to the feathers. 

Blue Manakin's (also known as Swallow - Tailed Manakin) are found Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.  They measure around 14.5  - 15 cm in length and weigh between 25 - 26 grams.

Many thanks to Dario Sanches for the reference photo.
