Drawn to ripening, red fruits of the rosehip this bashful Robin perches on the thorned stem. Looking down upon the fleshy centre and plentiful seeds, this Robin has had quite his fill. He contemplates whether he can manage a little more before the Finches move in!
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the robin, hips, laeves and thorns were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm feathers of the robin to the smooth rosehip. 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.
