River with Sailboats
This Chinese embroidered artwork depicts a serene and picturesque landscape of a river with sailboats, surrounded by lush greenery. The foreground features a wooden fence and the background is adorned with trees and shrubs. The hand embroidery technique used to create this piece is known as needle painting or silk shading. The embroidery is done by hand using silk threads, rather than paint. The water body is surrounded by lush greenery including trees and shrubs that are rich in detail. There are four sailboats on the water; each has white sails and they vary in size. The sky above is vast and appears to be either early morning or late afternoon, as it’s not very bright but not dark either; it’s embroidered with meticulous stitches giving it texture. The overall mood of the painting is peaceful and calm, inviting viewers to appreciate the natural beauty.
It is all hand embroidered with fine silk threads by embroidery artists from Su Embroidery Studio in Suzhou, China.
