Blackbird on Rowan

I love painting birds and this piece was an opportunity to experiment with some rust dyed fabrics I had as made as backgrounds and to play with the render of the litchen on the twigs the bird is using as a perch - as well as to use part of my precious stash of gorgeous indian sequins!

The piece is stitched over layers of rust dyed calico and silk noil, teabags and metallic fabrics.
