Chicken - A Watercolour and Embroidery on canvas by mimilove
Whilst there's no actual rabbits, "She's no Spring chicken!"..is something I hear quite often. Henny is nestled amongst a bushy undergrowth of hand embroidered greenery using a variety of silks and cottons in various shades of greens and yellows and a hint of contrasting lilac. A ribbon of embroidery and glittery glass beads in a rainbow of colours runs through the middle of the picture to give added texture
Its an original one of a kind, hand painted, watercolour painting with hand embroidery on stretched canvas. I've kept the painting free style to keep the colours fresh and bright, sketchy pencil marks are also visible. Colours are shades of ochres, oranges and lavender with pinky red detailing.
The main charity I support is my local Cat's Protection centre http://www.tamcats.co.uk/ . I give a percentage of any sales I make and also donate artworks and jewellery for fund raising events.
