My Original Photograph
This is my original image of icicles that I took on Tuesday while out for a walk with my daughter Pippa. I thought this would make a great subject for an embroidery so decided that I would do a series of embroidered pieces inspired by Bacup and the weather and the area I live in. I don't usually work from photographs as I prefer to go out sketching and then work from my drawings or paintings as in the floral watercolour paintings in the portfolio section of my website. As you will be able to see in the embroidery section the floral embroideries are taken from many of these floral paintings.
