Mendhi


Just something I painted for a couple of birthdays and a wedding coming up. Have been really into hands lately and so did this henna one in guache, then scanned it in and tweaked the colours a bit to make it clearer and more vibrant; then printed them out on hot-pressed watercolour paper. The printing-on-watercolour-paper works a treat!


Also, I'm setting this up on Monday to publish itself on Tuesday evening (as I don't want to spoil the surprise for the print recipients). I'll be in London by the time this appears ... hope this works ...

This is a great image - the colors just pop off the page. I'm intrigued by your technique - what kind of a printer do you use?

This was the best wedding card I received. I showed it to Ehsan last, after I showed him the rest, so I can take my time and tell him about it. He was amazed! And I have it framed in my apartment. Thanks for our very own personal card. It was the best gift!
