Upon The Lilly Bud
It's not often a kingfisher will venture into the garden unless it is by the riverside, but this is exactly what this kingfisher has done. Resting on top of a lily bud it watches the water below for movement, biding his time to strike.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the kingfisher and bud were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm feathers of the kingfisher to the hard bud. 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.
