Rosey's walk - she's finished.

After months of working on this piece 'Rosey's Walk' is finally finished.  The last few elements were to be added to finish this wonderful piece.  I've added a beetle, a spider and his web, and filling in the the fore and background.
The beetle was first, he's taken flight from the tree to catch the spider in his web.

The next element to go on was the spider and his web.

His web is a single strand of grey floss, glistening in the sunshine.
Surface elements was the leaves blowing in the breeze, and the mountains of High Range in the background.  Foreground elements are grass and river reeds with the river in the corner.  The last element is Rosey's collar.
Blue and free to bounce as she walks.
And now the final piece, ready to go into competition for the Townsville Show.

My word, I hadn't realised quite how much you were planning for this piece. I particularly like Rosey and the gum leaves.

I love the colours, and the way the legs are made on the beetle.

And such *even* detached buttonhole stitch! I'm jealous!

A lovely piece! Congratulations :-)
