Pretty In Pink
Amongst the bodding flower heads of the Japanese Anemone, a male Bullfinch relaxes. In tune with his surroundings he surveys the garden for its hidden delights and decides to stay a while instead. Why there is no better place in garden to stay camouflaged!
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the bullfinch, flowers, leaves and buds were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft feathers of the bird to the delicate petals. 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.
