Polka dot birdie

I've started working on 2011 Giclee calendar.
Each month has a card (Like last year) with a bird on it.
This polka dot birdie is for January.

Here it is! I finished it last night and scanned it this morning!
Q: Which birdie do you think is a boy and which one is a girl?
Watercolor on 8.5"x11" paper
This is how it looks framed!
I'm so happy with how it looks in Ikea Ribba frame :) Sweet!
Have a lovely Friday and weekend dear friends

My love for Typography

I ♥ typography and calligraphy, although I used to hate them in
school when I was a kid!
We used to practice Nastaligh (Persian style calligraphy)
and I have to say it was very difficult for me! But recently I was playing
with letters and illustrations and came up with this design.
It's not done yet, but I'll show the complete painting soon!
It's hard to see the birdies now! They are almost hidden :)

Thanks a lot dear friends for your wonderful comments for the
previous post! I actually cut one of the fruits as you said and it looks
exactly like an apple! So I guess these trees are crabapple trees.
I did a few painting on stones that I had found by the beach.
The colored parts are acrylic colors and I used a Pigma Micron 005 pen
to draw the black fine lines! It's much easier that a brush, especially
when the surface of the stones is not very smooth.

House Sparrow

I really didn't know male and female sparrows have different colors
until I took pictures of them while there were singing on our
I painted them with watercolors in my new tiny Moleskine
watercolor notebook.
When I took a close look at their photos I realized that they are
very different! You can read more about them here in Wikipedia.

These are the photos that I took from them. They both have something
in their beaks and still were singing! :)) I guess their nest is very close
and they're taking food to their chicks.

If you're looking for a very good watercolor notebook you'll love this one.
I bought this one from Ebay but they sell them in most craft stores.
You can also find them in Moleskine website.
