Silk shaded buzzards

Only one buzzard is visible here, but this is a pair of silk shaded buzzards, pictured circling in a blue sky. Each feather in the wings was stitched individually, using one strand of thread in the needle. I used the completed work to recover a piano stool at the client’s request.
