This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Madonna of the Meadows designed from a painting by Raphael Sanzio shows the Virgin Mary sitting in the meadow acting as guardian and protector of two children playing nearby which symbolize innocence and nature. In the distance you can see the city in cool colors like soft blues and greens, but as our eyes travel to the forefront of the scene, the colors become more deliberate and dramatic in deep red, navy and gold including the deep green of the landscape leading to the city. The transition of colors is soft in tone and creates an ethereal beauty. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
