This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Venus by Alexandre Cabanel shows a statuesque beauty with skin of porcelain and long flaxen hair tumbling down to mid-calf as she poses holding a golden apple. She casually drapes a piece of rose-colored satin cloth over her arm which cascades down past her feet. This is a very formal presentation and is one worthy of placing in your foyer, library (study) or hallway, any place of distinction in your home. The colors are soft, inviting and fit the mood of the artwork and would complement most formal venues. I am getting the impression that this woman is the artist's ideal of beauty. It is certainly a stunning piece and would make a stunning work of stitched art! No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
