The Bellowing Stag
As the day turns to night and the skies transform on the hills of the moor, the view beyond is lost in the deepness of dusk. All is still and cold, when a thundering of hoove's are heard ahead. Out of the murky blue, a doe gallops tentatively over the mossy rocks, picking her path as she rushes on ahead. A sudden roaring bellow hastens the doe, as a stag storms on behind her ready to herd her back to his patch.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the deer and rocks were achieved through quilting, applique and free hand embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur to the mossy rocks. 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.
