Madagascar Magpie Robin in acrylics

I love the way this one is perched on the branch and feather highlights. Really pleased with how it turned out. I used quite a few glazes to get the depth and shape to the feathers.

As the name suggests, these birds are endemic to Madagascar.

Madagascar Magpie Robin measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Suede paper.

Many thanks to Frank Vassen for the reference photo.
