A Fawn's First Stand
Deep in a lush, green woodland hidden away within a thicket, a female Fallow Deer has found the perfect protection to bring new life into the world. Within the comfort of the clearing surrounded by Hart's Tounge Fern, the mother washes its newly born fawn, who struggles to its feet, taking it first stand.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the deer and ferns were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur of the deer to the lush green fern leaves. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
