At the very of top Sheepstor of the edge of Dartmoor, a single Raven sits happily looking at the vast undulating tors of the Moor. With its wild untouched beauty, the Raven can rest out of the reach of the persecution. I sat with him for a while in the tranquillity the moors offers, before heading on with my journey. This curious and intelligent Raven hopped along behind me for a while before our path together ended and we both carried on alone.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and embroidered, the Raven and rocks were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm feathers of the Raven to the weathered 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.
