Black Phoebe ACEO in acrylics

I felt like a bit of a challenge so decided to paint this lovely black bird.  It always tricky painting black feather but with quite a few glazes , you can build up depth to the feathers. Really pleased with how it turned out.

Black Phoebe's are found in North, Central and South America.  They measure around 16 cm in length and weigh between 15 - 22 grams.

Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
