This design was inspired by the topographical drawings from Tunnicliffe’s beautiful book “Birdlife”. Complimentary to the textured areas are fine details in traditional and composite stitches. Create a sensitive translation of the feathered birds and their reflections on the water. Play with shades of blue, amber, ivory and ochre with reflections of khaki and green undertones. The Mandarin ducks is a wonderful design as a picture or cushion cover. Design size 22cm x 19cm.
Picture approximately 40cmx 40cm background fabric. Fine stitchery and texture work well together in shades of ochre and blue.
