TUI – The Intelligent Observer Tui pencil illustration proverb
ORIGINAL FOR SALE – POA @ this link


PROVERB

The intelligent observer Tui pencil illustration proverb
One who has the right facts
One who acts on the right facts
It is they who find the true reward


THE STORY

As with other illustrations, the challenge with this Tui was to control the pencil leads to a mid-tone perfection with a sensitive feel for color and the sparkle in feathers. It’s interesting as you work in black and white about how to interpret color hews into light and shade.

Observing Tui over multiple photo sessions made me aware of their intelligence.

All my observations could have led me to create a large photo book about Tui. I will leave that to the knowing ones in the fields of Science, Biology, Aerodynamics, Physics, Chemistry, Ethology, Ornithology, and whatever else is a source of fascination to studious minds.

Regarding the proverb fascinated me with the Tui’s parallels to human nature. I created a series of digital illustrations and allegories of my findings to inspire what is good for mankind.
