Rocco.

Rocco is A UNIQUE BIRD! A large smoky-grey parrot of the cockatoo family native to New Guinea and far north Queensland, Australia.

While travelling, my main ‘tools’, carried in my bag, are always: a book made with cold-pressed watercolour paper (usually Moleskine or Stillman & Birn), my water brush (any kind), a few pens and of course my water-colour paints (Schminke).

I decided to share with you some of my fun memories from my travels and vacations.…

The Hoopoe.

The hoopoe (upupa epops L.) is an old-word bird. It hails from Africa. And it brings wisdom. In oriental the hoopoe shelters Solomon. The king of the hoopoes asks of Solomon a reward for having shielded the king from the┬á rays of the sun. Solomon grants the request by bestowing golden crowns upon all hoopoes. This arouses the jealousy of the other┬á birds, causing them to persecute the hoopoes. They complain to Solomon, and he,…
