As the skies turn to a soft blue and the sun warms the air around us, the blossom on the fruit trees starts to bloom, turning the trees into a foam of white and cream. Four newly fledged Blue Tits find these branches the perfect place to rest after their venture from their nest. Tired and hopeful they wait, relaxing upon its branches.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the blue tits, branch and blossom were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm feathers of the birds to the delicate blossom. 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.
