This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The First Mourning designed from a painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau shows a young man who has died is stretched across the lap of a friend while woman weeps out of grief due to the outstretched man being deceased. The man who is holding the deceased on his lap is also trying to comfort the woman. Both are in mourning for their friend and are distraught by this loss. The artist has chosen to document this as the first mourning scene captured on canvas. 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.
