Drawing | A starting point for collaboration

“Which flower represents you ?”

While waiting for lunch, I asked Purvi, the Indian girl with long curly brown hair and big shining eyes.

Lily, Hydrangea, and Lotus. ” She answered.

“How about me ?” I asked her.

Birds of Paradise.”  She said.
Bird-Of-Paradise

 

“Why ?”

“The color is brilliant, and it’s unique”

“I love Roselle and Sunflower too,” I told her.

I drew Purvi in purple and Mowen in black, with a background of Hydrangea and Roselle, on a page of the Victorian London map.

Purvi drew Lily, Lotus, Rainbow, and Bird of Paradise on a piece of white paper.

Then I cut those flowers Purvi drew and stuck on my drawings.

“See, this is Purvi and Mowen.”  I showed her the first drawing we made together.

“I love it !” Purvi was happy.

This is how we started to collaborate on the second project at school.
