Purple Iris Hand Painted Panel
Panel Size: approx 39cm Wide x63cm High
Design Size: approx 22cm Wide x 40cm High
The Purple Iris Hand Painted Panel is a stunning medium sized original hand painted abstract design by Patricia Grange, a local artist on the Mornington Peninsula.
Each panel has been lovingly and individually hand painted on a quality Calico background.
The Purple Iris Panel would be suited to both the experienced stitcher and a brave beginner!
This Purple Iris Panel would be best done as a freehand embroidery, where placement of flowers, leaves and stems will be determined by your own creativity. This method of ribbon embroidery showcases the hand painted panel and gives real dimension to the piece. Far more effective than just embroidering over a pre-printed panel designed only for showing thread and ribbon placement. However, if you are not confident to do this, Purple Iris’s Pattern by Bev Tully is available HERE
Previously in store, under tuition, our Teachers used to recommend a combination of commercial sheer ribbons and hand dyed silk ribbons and threads in a variety of sizes to complete the project.
The Iris Panel is not a difficult project but to maintain the integrity of the intended pattern, a true dedication to ”less is more” way of thinking will give you the intended and desired result. As each panel is hand painted, some slight variations in design may occur.
