Kingfisher- hand stitched picture

Kingfisher- hand stitched picture
Love this


A detailed hand embroidered study of a kingfisher among some weeping willow leaves.

This colourful bird has been carefully depicted with strands of embroidery thread in shades of burnt orange and blue turquoise. I’ve emphasised the iridescent plumage with tiny stitches of a metallic thread which catch the light and twinkle.

It looks as though the willow branches are just gently swaying in a breeze, and something has caught the Kingfisher’s eye.

Measuring just over 4x4 cms in a frame that is nearly 15x15 cms. The wooden frame has a grainy black finish, and the light grey mount board has a smart black core that neatly outlines the textile work.

A thoughtful gift for a birdwatcher, a nature lover or just a fan of Kingfishers.


Colourful but quite hard to spot, beautiful but deadly assassins, Kingfishers are quite intriguing.

Usually just a flash of blue, and a splash, it’s hard to get a good look at one in its natural habitat. I’m really drawn to their gorgeous colours and sleek shape, so keep returning to them as a subject.
