Acrylic Canvas and Embroidery

I went on a day school with the embroiderers' guild 'Textured Landscapes' where we explored painting canvases and embellishing them with anything to hand. Here I painted a landscape and applied dried wheat then embellished it with embroidery.

The seed head and the centre of the poppy are pieces of stump work. Although you may not be able to see threads were also painted into the canvas to create texture.

I was in my element and created 2 during the day.

You've given me an idea for teaching about foreground, middleground and background in landscape painting!
