After a morning of swimming lessons, these three otter pups huddle together on the river bank surrounded by clover and grass for an afternoon kip. Tired from the morning events one has already drifted off to sleep in the warmth of the afternoon sun. Another was drifting off when its sibling interrupted him with a loud yawn!
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the pups and grass and clover were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur of the otter pups to the lush, green leaves.
