Kingfisher Kōtare Large mixed media


The Kōtare (Kingfisher) is a beautiful native of Aotearoa, with iridescent blue feathers and highlights of yellow and green. The bird will sit absolutely still and then, like a dart, launch upon its prey and zip back to its perch. 

The prints in this series are letterpress printed and hand coloured with Windsor and Newton drawing inks to make four colours in total. The colouring brings out the impression of the tonal variations of the bird.
