Cassowary ACEO in acrylics

I have had this one printed out for ages to print. Really pleased with how it turned out. They are a strange looking bird - I wouldn't like to come across one in the bush as they can do same serious damage with their claws.

The Cassowary is found in North Eastern Australia and the tropical forests of New Guinea.  Cassowaries are around 1.5 - 1.8 metres tall and weigh around 58.5 kilograms. They can run up to 50km/hour through dense forest!!

Cassowary measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Robyn Lovelock for the reference photo.
