Fingerprint Tree

The initial tree pen drawing

Some friends of mine were getting married (hurrah) and they wanted a way of remembering the day. One of the ideas they had was for people to put their fingerprints on a canvas to form leaves on a tree. And this was the result.

My first attempt at cross hatching – it certainly adds a lot of character to the drawing

On the wedding day – guests adding their mark by dipping a fingertip onto a paint filled sponge and then pushing it onto the canvas and writing their name beside

The final fingerprint tree canvas

One thing to note РGeorgia chose a green colour scheme as she liked it so it would be interesting to see other schemes e.g. autumnal leaf colours or even abstract ones like blues with purples.
