Orange Breasted Waxbill in acrylics

I love the feather colours of this one -  really pleased with how it turned out.  I also tried out  a new red (Napthol Crimson) as they have discontinued one of the reds I used to use.  Mixed with yellow it makes a really a nice  vibrant orange which work really well for this painting.

Orange Breasted Waxbill measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Suede Paper.

Many thanks to Derek Keats for the reference photo.
