Victoria Rose Richards is a self-taught embroiderer inspired by aerial views of British landscapes to produce gorgeous needlework. She’s already made almost 200 of these, and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon!
Moreover, Victoria mentioned in a recent interview that she was working on a Hue Series in which she was making landscapes in each color of the color wheel. And she got stuck on the green one around June of last year. “I was thinking about ideas and staring through my bedroom window at the fields beyond and wondering how a top-down perspective of fields and trees might work out!” the artist indeed stated. In addition, she uttered that “I fell in love with the first artwork straight away—I’d always been interested in aerial vistas, and I felt like I’d discovered my calling in this!”
Victoria’s less elaborate embroideries may take anything from 6 to 25 hours to complete, while the larger and more complicated ones might take up to 50.
“I prefer to make my paintings as vivid as possible. Therefore I utilize bold, rich hues even if they would be dreary in a real-life landscape,” the artist added. “I love to believe in myself as an upbeat artist!”
