Tufted Flycatcher ACEO in acrylics

I love how this one is all fluffed up.  It was a bit more tricky to paint than I thought it would be.  I ended up using quite a few glazes to get some depth to the feathers.

Tufted Flycatcher breed from North Western Mexico to North Western Ecuador. They measure around  12 cm in length ad weigh about 8.5 grams.

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

Many thanks to Bettina Arrigoni for the reference photo.
