Stitching in the shadows.

 Hours later, more stitches, slow progress, working on the Winter end.
Stitches now spilling onto the background silk and french knot drifting into the branches.
A strip of calico painted with gesso or white acrylic paint to prepare ( it is stiff but I can still stitch into it), then mixed media- silk dyes, water colour paint, water soluble crayons and hand stitched with a variety of threads. Appliqued onto a white silk background. Painted strip is 14 inches x 4 ins. I am working it stretched onto a wooden frame.
