White Bearded Manakin ACEO in acrylics

This one was interesting to paint as it is  more difficult to paint black feathers.  I used a few glazes of red/blue to create some definition to the feathers.

The white bearded manakin is found in South America.  They measure around 10.7 cm in length and weigh around 16.5 grams.

Many thanks to Dario Sanches for the reference photo.
