Bluebells

Bluebells are famous throughout Sussex, but particularly special locations for me are Angmering Estate and Patching Woods near Worthing. There is sense of quiet within the trees which is almost palpable and with the light sparkling like diamonds through the beech trees and the perfume of the flowers held heavy below the canopy, they provide a welcome place for contemplation and to be still. The stitching tries to capture the light through the canopy and the jewel like colours of the bluebells underfoot.

The piece is stitched over layers of painted calico, silk noil and bandage.
