This was a recent commission. 

I hand painted  the silk  backdrop fabric. Then drew and painted the heron &  it's individual  feathers, the cattails, grasses ect on silk as well. Everything was appliqued  onto my backdrop.

All those feathers & blades of grass were appliqued on individually, one by one.. Then thread painted it and quilted.it.

A very good balance between the colors and the picture composition. Go ahead !
