Since I am learning acrylics now, after years of working in oils, I decided to re-paint my titmouse painting in acrylic. This was a fun project, and I learned some things about acrylics doing this.
As usual, I used a limited palette (titanium white, hansa yellow, yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, burnt umber and burnt sienna). I found it was a bit difficult to get a good color blend on the feathers and sky; I had to keep redoing in layers instead of simply blending together as I did in oils. But I finally got the effect I wanted. It was a lot faster painting in acrylics, since I didn’t have to wait for my layers to dry.

Yleniaely, thank you for your comments; they are appreciated.
I like the way you have used the branches to frame the bird.
Thank you, Graham
