A Kingfisher with wings outstretched, just about to dive...
This detailed little picture is hand embroidered with individual strands of thread in shades of burnt orange and blue turquoise onto a soft cotton background. That iridescent plumage is emphasised with tiny stitches in a metallic turquoise thread.
I expect there’s a blissfully unaware little fish in the water beneath that dangerous bill.
The stitched piece is 3x3 cms and it’s framed in narrow oak which measures nearly 11x11 cms. For clarity I photographed it without the glass and in natural light, with a hook on the reverse and with the glass in place it’s ready for display.
A thoughtful gift for a nature lover, a birdwatcher or a keen kingfisher fan.
I’ve been working on kingfishers as subject matter for years - the wonderful colours and iridescence, and that sleek shape are very appealing. However, I wanted to try and show the graceful, aerodynamic shape in action... having eventfully found a suitable candidate, here is my first attempt
