Well, I am calling this fellow done and ready to back and bind. In all, I am pretty pleased but there are a couple of things I might have done differently another time. I think he does evoke that lovely sunny day at Keil . Everything was slightly overexposed because of the clear sky and pale stones on the beach. I DO wish I could create the bird call for you. It is so lovely and haunting in the stillness.
The second picture just shows a little more detail of the stitching and the little shells. I will post him once more when he is finally hangable. Meantime, he is a nice reminder of a gorgeous afternoon in Scotland .
