doodlewear 'Rainy Day Tui' (April 2023) quality 100% cotton bird tea towel by NZ Artist Sarah McAlpine Art. These tea towels features a playful art print of a beautiful New Zealand Tui bird perched, holding a Tui umbrella in its claws. The artwork includes a splash of orange depicting rain, digitally hand-drawn and signed.
The other day, I was asked if I had anything with a Tui on it. I replied, "Not really," but then I remembered that I had created an acrylic painting of a Tui for a local art show seven years ago! Tūīs are a subject that I have regularly drawn, although I had been avoiding revisiting this native bird until now. However, the idea was planted, and one night, I felt confident that I could capture the beauty of this attractive bird once again. In this design, I incorporated some other graphics, depicting the Tui bird holding an umbrella as drops of vivid orange splash behind it.
