Black and white Woodpecker - hand embroidered picture featuring one of our woodland favourites.

This detailed image was carefully stitched by hand using individual strands of embroidery threads onto a soft green cotton background. The splash of crimson on the head and beneath the tail make these local wild birds a distinctive sight. Here I’ve used pieces of textured ribbon to form the tree trunk and branches.

The dramatic colours of the feathers are shown off in a black grainy textured frame and a light grey mount board which has a black core that outlines the work neatly. The piece of textile is just under 4x4 cms and the frame is 14.5x14.5 cms. The photos are without the glass to eliminate reflections, and the natural light hopefully shows the colours accurately but remember that screens vary. With the glass in place and a string on the back it’s ready for display.

A birdwatcher, a gardener or a nature lover would appreciate this little picture.

A very special sight to see at the garden feeder, although we often hear the percussive tapping of the local woodpeckers.

The dramatic contrast of the black and white feathers with the lovely crimson flashes make these characterful birds great subjects to work from.
