Green Kingfisher ACEO in acrylics

Really pleased with the depth I managed to create with the green plumage - I used a glaze of transparent yellow for the highlights which seemed to work rather well.

Green Kingfishers occur from southern Texas in the USA, south through to Central and South America though  to central Argentina.  They measure around 19 cm in length and weigh around 27 grams.

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

Many thanks to Michael Pazzani for the reference photo.
