This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Miranda--The Tempest designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows Miranda (from the play called The Tempest written by Shakespeare) sitting on a large rock watching the power of the storm tear up a ship and break it in two not far away. She and her father have been detained in exile on an island for 12 years. The hopelessness and despair felt is only magnified further by watching the destruction of the ship, and Miranda's hair blows wildly in her face while the roar of the ocean threatens to lure her in. The tones of the sky and ocean are cold so as to make the viewer almost feel the coldness of the rough waters. A lot of emotion is portrayed here! This is a favorite for seafaring stitchers! 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.
