Thunder & Lightning by Toni Gerdes

This dramatic depiction of Thunder & Lightning sparks the imagination with a theatrical storm. I explored many different shades and textures of blues, purples, magenta, oranges and yellow threads as I created the towering thunder clouds that produce the spectacular lightning bursts couched on top of the storm clouds. The rolling foreground was created with several stitches using an overdyed cotton. Threads include Silk Lame Braid, Mandarin floss, several silks, Watercolors, Burmilana, Accentuate & Legacy. This intermediate level canvas embroidery design is approximately 9” x 7”.
