Swallow Tailed Bee-Eater in acrylics

I love the feather colours of this one.  I used quite a few combinations of blue/yellow for feathers and I also went looking for my sap green tube of paint.  I any ever use the sap green when painting green feathers as I usually need it for the final glazes to the feathers.
Swallow Tailed Bee-Eater measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth paper.

Many thanks to Scotch Macaskill for the reference photo.
