    Thanks a lot, Vidhya. If you or anyone knows where those sets are available in Chennai(particular shop), that would be nice to get the same from my parents.

    Meanwhile, found a site where they have explained step by step for flowers, animals etc. I have asked earlier for my son and he tried just now a flower-daisy it was really neat too.

    Howstuffworks "How to Draw a Violet"

    Bye.

    Ami,

    Wetcanvas.com is an information storehouse for all kinds of artistic mediums. There is a subforum called Classroom in the link below where you will find a lot of drawing tutorials:
    WetCanvas! - Browsing Content Channel: Drawing & Sketching
    You will also find tutorials under the Colored pencil and Watercolor forums. Here's a link to the watercolor classroom: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=291955

    If you are planning to buy from India, then Landmark, Spencer Plaza and Landmark, Nungambakkam has very good books. I bought one on sketching by Keshaw Kumar.

    In the US, you can check out your local library. Books by Walter Foster publications are very helpful. Here's a link:
    Walter Foster - drawing & lettering
    Click on any book and you will get an idea of what the tutorials are like.

    There are also some video demos in Google Videos.

    Another link to an e-book:
