The Orchard, detail shot

A close-up look at the loopy knots I use to represent the texture of the blossoms. This stitch was the best for the mood of softness I was going for. I considered adding fuzzy wool to this one, but felt that it just wasn't the right fit. I wanted to convey the softness of Impressionism, but not the cloying sweetness of cotton candy.
