fisherman embroidery



Here is the finished fisherman embroidery from the sketch I posted before. I love the way his eyes and beard have been stitched out. The thread is so shiny but my camera isn't great! I took the pictures in natural light, but the colour and depth of the textures have been lost in these images. If my aim is to avoid using computers to illustrate during my 'out-of hours' work time, it's no surprise that something created without the screen needs to be seen in 'real-life' without a screen. Next problem is to work out how to frame these pieces in the right way.

I had been waiting for you to upload the finished piece. This is awesome :) You have a great talent with needle and thread.

Thank you Ruby for your nice comment. That's very sweet of you! I feel like I have a lot to learn still, but I did enjoy making this embroidery so I hope I will do more in the future.
