Pale Blue Flycatcher ACEO in acrylics

I had to use quite a few glazed of different blues to get some depth to the feathers - really pleased with how it finally turned out.

Pale Blue Flycatchers are found in  Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam.  They measure around 16.5 - 18 cm in length and weigh between 16 - 19 grams.

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

Many thanks to Francesco Veronesi for the reference photo.
