Waxwing birds in acrylics

I've been in a bird-painting mode lately. Here are two recent paintings of waxwing birds done in acrylics, each on a 12x12 inch gallery-wrapped canvas, using two very different styles. One is more realistic (my usual style) and the other one is looser and more painterly. Leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best.
