Bell's Vireo ACEO in acrylics

This one was fun to paint - everything just seemed work.

Bell's Vireo's are found in central and south western United States as well as in Northern Mexico. They measures around 11 - 12 cm in length and weigh between 7 - 10 grams. In interesting fact about them is that  no-one has ever observed them drinking water. It is believed that they may obtain all what  they need from their food.

Bell's Vireo 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.
