Second Attempt

For my second try at using the picture I traced it onto a batik using a water soluble pen.

Then I sandwiched it and stitched the entire design in black thread. Using Stewart Gill paints I carefully painted each area, blending colors to show depth and new growth.

Here is the result. I'm much happier with this one, but I want to explore more possibilities using this design so I'm not done yet.
