I have been following Mary Corbet's progress on her scrumptious crewel work rooster project on Needle n'Thread, and while browsing the internet for goldwork inspiration came across this amazing goldwork rooster by Tanja Berlin and just had to share it with you.
This project is not for the feint-hearted, it took Tanja 48 hours to create!
The rooster is featured on her Work In Progress page. There is a series of clear photos demonstrating her progress as the rooster is worked as well as information on the threads and wires used at various stages. I love the effect created by the different textures and colours of the wires on the feathers.
There are 18 other projects on the Work In Progress page.
The needle painting projects include progressive photos of long and short stitch workings. I found the pictures showing how Tanja divided the various elements of her the needle painting into sections and directional lines particularly insightful.
Wow, I'm speechless!!!!
Thankyou Tanja for sharing your exquisite workings with us.
