I had seen these flowers in Hawaii. I didn’t know thier name at that time. Online search revealed their name as Hyacinth, Blue or Purple.
I sketched them on a card and presented the card to a little girl in Pune on eve of Diwali 2012.
Faber-Castell colored pencils again.
I like this simple brown bird. Sparrows indeed look cute.
I have sketched this with a pack of 24 shades of Faber-Castell. Obviously I have used brown, black and white from the pack. Their biggest advantage is that they work well with regular sharpener.
