Tanja Berlin gives excellent “very detailed” instructions for Needle Painting and other forms of embroidery…Her website has some stunning examples of Needle Painting. Below is a picture of The Field Mouse that was done by her..
Now to share where I am at in this needle painting…Last time I mentioned this piece I was working on the stems…I am finally at the “wheat ear” on the left hand side and have done just a couple of the husks…the colors will change a bit as I work my way down the stalk…Will this be exactly like Tanjas? Definitely not…I am glad that Needle Painting has a certain freeform about the process and because of light..shading ect. in nature and life…the final finished piece will be different in subtle ways…where I place my stitches are certainly going to be different than Tanjas …plus I am always learning and striving to improve…Tanja has tons more experience than myself!
