This is a combination of careful zentangle line work, watercolour and ink. I have tried to make the background nice and light although very detailed so that the bold Tui stands out in all its glory. I wanted this Tui artwork to represent elements of Kiwi life and all the simple yet beautiful things we take for granted.
Steampunk Tui Bird
I have always loved steampunk and with my recent exploration of all things 'kiwi' I decided it was time to combine the two. I wanted the painting to portray the story of a smart and cunning Tui with one of its feathers in its hat and a key it its beak implying it's escaped from its cage. I can't wait to do more steampunk artworks and discover the stories they create.
