So I've been embroidering a lot lately (definately a lot more than painting) and I'm so pleased with how they've turned out. I'm really trying to get some depth with colors and shading in a linear style. This bird piece I am particulerly fond of. Again I was trying to give it a bit of depth as embroidery can tend to look a bit flat as it is a mostly a linear style of work. My plan is to turn it into a pillow. I love it.
