Red Backed Fairy Wren ACEO in Acrylics

Also on my walk on Sunday, I  came across some Red Backed Fairy Wren's.  This little female sat for a while so I managed to take a few photos of her before she flew off.  I just love the position she is perched on the  branch.  Really pleased with the painting.

Red Backed Fairy Wren's are found in North and East Australia.  They are the smallest of the fairy wrens measuring  between 9 - 13 cm's of which 6 cm's is their tail.  They weigh on average 8 grams.

Red Backed Fairy Wren (Female) measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.
