This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Love and the Maiden designed from a painting by John Roddam Stanhope shows an encounter between Cupid and a maiden who, upon getting shot with Cupid's arrow, will have her first experience of love. The colors are very bright and vibrant leaning towards the warm group of colors, and the figures look animated. There is a lot of detail in this work, and stitching it might be a challenge, but if you're up for the challenge, it will be well worth it when finished. 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.
