Blue Jay.  A class sample for Thread Painting.    I did use a piece of the blue fabric to establish a color background, but then all the wing and tail detail was added with layers of thread.  Contrast was a low in spots . .  a bit of ink always helps when the fabric doesn't cooperate.   Approximately 12 x 14 inches.  Note the thread painted feather in the border.
