"New Zealand Tui"

Scratchboard & Ink (8x10in)

The New Zealand Tui is one of my most favourite songbirds.
The Tui's dawn chorus along with the Bellbird is an incredible thing to experience!
The tui's feathers are such iridescent in colouring, I used Daler-Rowney FW inks and glazed with a
shimmer blue to create a little shine off the feathers.

I made a little video including their birdsong, showing the final board varnished, click here
(birdsong from DoC website)
