paisley flowers

I wanted to use paisley shapes in a drawing and finally got around to sketching out an idea yesterday and am really happy with the end result. Also wanted to try out the orange micron pens that I have had kicking around in my drawer - love how it makes the drawing a lot less harsh and, I think, gives it a henna/mehndi look.

  3. Your artwork is so beautiful, have been checking it out via my iPhone. Will have to have a look on my PC to be able to appreciate it properly. Found your site via a tangle pattern link.

  5. Beautiful is too tame a word, but it will have to do for now. I'm so glad Shelley linked you on her blog.
