Lily of the Lake
Teacher: Gail Sirna
Technique: Canvaswork
The water lily is a beautiful flower, fairly common but always enchanting. They evoke the Orient yet are found around the world. Lily of the Lake is a single beautiful specimen floating in a tranquil pool of water and accompanied by its characteristic round leaves, unusual and evocative. A beautiful butterfly comes to visit our lily.

The lily petals are worked in a number of canvas stitches, each one chosen to create a slight bit of perspective in the design. The student will learn to depict foreground and background by the choice of stitches plus values of the chosen hue. The lily and its leaves are subtly reflected in the simple darning that depicts the water of the lake. Framing the lily are two elaborate borders of differing width. Each is carefully constructed of a variety if interesting and in some cases, challenging canvas work stitches.
