Illustration Friday - 'Paisley' in authentic Heena design by Leena Bagawde

When this topic 'paisley' was announced, I was thrilled, as this is one of my favorite design patterns. Also, I'm just back from a colorful 'Indian Wedding', which inspired me to illustrate 'Heena' (Mehndi) on my own palm.

The 'paisley' pattern is one of the inseparable design patterns found in 'Heena' (Mehndi) designs. The Mehndi ceremony is an important ritual for a bride during wedding ceremony.

Hope you all like my entry.
