Stags At Dusk
A purple glow is cast over the lake and surrounding countryside as the sun sets behind the hills beyond. Two Stags met in a battle for dominance to claim the right of breeding, they crash their antlers and lock, turning and thrusting, sending water flying into the air. Only time will tell who is stronger and fitter in order to win the fight.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the Stags, water and reeds were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur of the Stags to the crashing water. 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.
