Green Headed Tanager ACEO in acrylics

I love the feather colours of this one  - from its bluish -green head  to the varies colours on its wings and belly.

Green Headed Tanagers are found in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.  They are around 13 cm in length and weigh about 18 grams.

Green Headed Tanager measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Dario Sanches for the reference photo.
