Harris's Sparrow ACEO in acrylics

This one was rather fun to paint - love its markings.

Harris's Sparrows are found in North America.  They measure between 17 - 20 cm in length  and weigh between 26 - 49 grams.  This one is non breeding male.   A breeding male would have more grey / black face as opposed to a buffy face.

Harris's Sparrow measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm Arches Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
