This one so far is based on a lake scene. It will have lots of greenery, lots of lush in the foreground, and a fence post as well. First, I start with the base fabrics. I colour on them a bit with pencils just to remind myself where I want things placed.
It's going to be much brighter of a field than this, but I think it needs deeper colours to back it up. I keep my original image up on my laptop nearby to understand the perspective and colour changes.

I am opening up the water area a bit more so that it is more of a feature in the composition. Otherwise, I'm ready! I'm quite excited to work on this! Here's my threads I'll pick from...
Then the machine stitching happens. There's a lot of blending. I'm excited to start the hand work. This field will be full of hand embroidery. There will be lots of blooms in it, and an old fencepost too.
The handstitching will likely take a few days, but I feel like I got a very productive start on it! : )
