Barley stitches embroidery detail

Close-up of barley stitches embroidery detail

Here is a close up photo of my barley stitches. I am really happy with the overlaying of the stitching since it gives a great 3D effect enhancing the depth of the picture. This image is from the foreground section of my latest textile art landscape. The work is based on a view of the Lammermuir Hills from the entrance to West Mains farm and it is the largest landscape I have worked on so far, almost A4 sized.

Silk painted background, embroidery detail with machine and hand embroidery used to work in some dyed wool picked up at St Abbs Wool Fest last weekend, plus silk throwsters and mulberry bark. Based on a view of the Lammermuir Hills from West Mains Farm near Morham.
