This is an amazing piece of embroidery created free hand from a photograph of Steve McQueen.
Once laced over acid free board, the embroidery was framed just simply using a rusty red / brown, open grain moulding and an off white mount to keep the glass away from the stitches. Here is the image the embroidery was created from.
An amazing piece of work of an amazing actor. Favourite Steve McQueen film I hear you ask? Too many to choose from. I'm gonna plump for Great Escape just because he rode the motorcycle himself. I know, cool or what.
