I'm not sure how clear the picture is. Usually I show this sort of things across the work as well as front on so you can see what the texture is.
What this is is an oil painting of my mother-in-law's cat on unstretched canvas. I've then embroidered freehand into the painting and ribbon embroidered into it before painting back into the embroidered painting to finish off emphasising particular bits that need a bit more defining.
I am obsessed with hand embroidery and clearly love painting and drawing too. So i decided to try combine the two big passions of mine
ii hope you like it
