Extreme closeup of the latest scratchboard... Carrying on the theme after the miniature zebra eye scratchboards, I think everyone knows who this eye belongs to... 6x6in scratchboard with @daler_rowney FW Pearlescent & Shimmer inks. Not sure what to call it yet, if anyone can think of a clever title there's a free print for you via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/ArtistKarenNeal/ #tiger #tigereye #tigerart #bigcat #scratchboard #scratchboardart #karennealartist #wildlife #wildlifeart #eye #inks #dalerrowney #dalerrowneyinks #fwinks #ampersand #artofinstagram #gordonharris
One from the archives: "Piwakawaka" (New Zealand Fantail) & has been a popular limited edition print. Original is painted in oils. One of my favourite NZ birds 💚 love how they flit around you singing their little hearts out, but more likely they are just waiting for us to kick up insects for them to eat 🤓#fantail #piwakawaka #nzbirds #nz #nznature #newzealand #karennealartist #newzealandartist #newzealandbirds #bird #birdart #nature #natureart #artofinstagram #lovebirds #birdsofinstagram
Beetle thinks the new scratchy ball toy thingy from Pet.co.nz​ is a winner... especially when it comes with complimentary catmint to rub yourself in 🤣😻 #mainecoon #cat #catsofinstagram #catsplaying #cats #lovemycat
Post previous post... a cropped framed version of my limited edition print "Are A Zebra's Stripes Black... Or White?" in the McKewen household, I love how the smiley Bentley is photobombing the home staging photo 🤓🤣 #zebra #zebraart #africanart #wildlife #wildliftart #wildlifeartist #stripes #monochrome #blackandwhite #blackandwhiteart #africananimals #africanwildlife #scratchboard #ampersand #karennealartist #scalpelart #print #prints #nzprints #homestaging #zebraprint #newzealandartist #natureartist #art #artist #artofinstagram
An oldie but a goodie, I've done a few zebra Scratchboards now, but must confess this is one of my faves 🙂 Titled "Are A Zebra's Stripes Black... Or White?" it's been re-released as a print through Image Vault 🤓@imagevaultltd  #zebra #zebraart #africanart #wildlife #wildliftart #wildlifeartist #stripes #monochrome #blackandwhite #blackandwhiteart #africananimals #africanwildlife #scratchboard #ampersand #imagevault #karennealartist #scalpelart #print #prints #newzealandartist
Weird light out there tonite, beam me up Wellington?! #rarangibeach #rarangi #marlborough #newzealand #weather #clouds #wellington #raincoming
Hihi (Stitchbird) is endemic to New Zealand (of the honey-eating family). Once considered very rare, this vulnerable little bird still proves elusive but thanks to translocations can be spotted in managed predator-free areas such as Zealandia in Wellington. Lovely to see this little guy who was happy to pose for us, a first for me :-) @visit_zealandia #rarebird #hihi #stitchbird #nzbirds #bird #birds #nativebirds #endemicbirds #newzealand #zealandia #nature #birdphotography #conservation #docnz

His name is Orbell... isn't he handsome! I did see Orbell's female companion too which was a treat as she is slowly still getting used to humans being around so she is proving a little elusive. Takahe were actually declared extinct in the early 1900's but were rediscovered in the 40's, I find these birds amazing and almost prehistoric looking! #takahe #TakahēRecovery #savingtakahē #newzealand #nznativebird #endemic #zealandia #nativebirds #extinct #nzbirds #bird #birds #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #birdsofinstagram
Feeling as slow as this slow-moving preggy tuatara today... epic journey to get across 'that' ditch last night. Missed our 5pm ferry literally by 2 mins trying to return our rental car and getting lost in Wellywood... 8.30pm sailing had a breakdown and we finally got home at 3am, 7 hours on a ferry, blah.
PS. photo from @visit_zealandia Zealandia :-) more to come. #zealandia #tuatara #nznative #backtowork
Paint glorious paint!! ...experimenting with fluid painting, got a thing about teals, turquoises and coppers at the moment.
