My Menhdi art is all finished.
I have to say that although I wasn't particularly enjoying this when I started , once I got to putting on all the detail I started to really get into it.
All of the patterns are taken from traditional Hindu designs.
I continued in black and white as it was just so striking.
It will be going on a wall that will likely end up red or dark ochre and there will be a lot of brown and wood tones in the room so I thought black and white would change it up a little.
I am really pleased how it has turned out and it will definitely end up as art in my Indian room.
One thing I really loved about this was how easy it was to pick up and work on ...whether it was for 5 minutes or an hour. It required very little space or tools and made no mess....now that was a novelty :-)
I need to get back to putting on my leaves now but this was a very welcome break and I will be doing another to go with it. Not sure if I 'll do a foot or another hand.... I do love the gracefulness of the Indian dance hand positions so it might be another hand.
Now , a question for all you proper artists out there. This is done on canvas. Do I need to seal it or anything or it this good to go ?
