Blue Grosbeak ACEO in acrylics

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

Blue Grosbeaks are found in North and Central America.  They measure between 14  - 19 cm in length and weigh between 26 - 32 grams.

Blue Grosbeak measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth paper.

Many thanks to Alan Schmierer for the reference photo.
