Black Tailed Gnatcatcher in acrylics

I love the different colour background of this one - it just seems to compliment the grey little bird perfectly.  Really pleased with how it turned out.

Black Tailed Gnatcatchers are a tiny songbird found in arid South Western United States and Northern Mexico.  They measure around 11 - 13 cm in length and weigh between 5.1 - 6 grams.

Black Tailed Gnatcatcher measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord Panel.

Many thanks to Bettina Arrigoni for the reference photo.
