Baird's Sparrow ACEO in acrylics

This one was a bit more tricky to paint than I thought it would be and I did quite a few glazes to get the depth to the feathers.

Baird's Sparrow are native to the United States, Canada and Mexico.  They measure around 12 cm in length and weigh between 17 - 21 grams.

Baird's Sparrow measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

Many thanks to Alan Schmierer for the reference photo.
