Here is my interpretation of Kandinsky's Autumn in Bavaria.  The real version can be seen here:http://web.sbu.edu/theology/bychkov/kandinsky_autumn_inbavaria08.jpg
Here is my version:

(this photograph is not wonderful where the colours are concerned so Ill try to get another with natural light after work tomorrow)
Its pretty much all done in split stitch, satin stitch and a tiny amount of long and short and chain stitch.  It took a couple of months to complete but only because I got bored of all the fiddily colour changing.  I ended up finishing it over the summer holiday, which was rather fitting as I was in Bavaria and visiting lots of art galleries with Kandinsky (and other artists from the Blaue Reiter group) on display.  Having toured the Bavarian art galleries I have decided I prefer Gabrielle Muenter's works so maybe she will be part of my next project (once work calms down).
I hope its of some interest to you all.

It's fantastic. There's nothing I appreciate more than a fully embroidered piece. It's absolutely beautiful, great stitching!

This is a work of art. Congratulations on a beautiful piece. Did you draw it on the canvas first? What kind of fabric did you use?

thanks for the comments!
twodustyboots:  I sketch out the basic shapes onto the fabric, but then I fill in the rest of it from refering to the picture or from memory.  So on this piece I only really drew on the road, church and the shape of the trees. The fabric is just a cotton mix nothing fancy.  I mean to get better fabric but havent got round to it yet.
Thanks again for commenting
