The Proclaimer Needlepoint Design - one of the Four Central Motifs from the Trades of Talavera Needlework Collection - is available as Needlepoint Kits and Canvases. We named this painting The Reveler.
Dressed in the historical country peasant fashion of the 17th century - The Proclaimer could be also named The Town Crier.
Containing nineteen different colors - each area of this design - was painfully developed by translating painted strokes into constrained dots of colored fibers until successfully reproducing the appearance of a painted tile into yarn.
The touches of tangerine are a perfect example of triangulation - so important in the classical compositions. The balanced stance of the Proclaimer in yet such a relaxed body tension draws any observer into his inside world.
The very pale peach - yellow and ancient blue background colors were successfully dyed to reproduce the luminosity of the Talavera paints. The stylized clouds repeat the four shades of blues found in the Proclaimer*s shirt.
Successfully adding a tad more perspective to this tile painting - gave a nice dimension - while retaining the original naive effect.
