This particular collection was inspired by the reputable drink served at the Kentucky Derby, Mint Juleps. In regards, to this particular image it is easy to detect the cross stitch technique throughout. One thing I believe is important to offer while creating, multitudes of stitches. It's a personal preference of having an idea of what to create and colors of choice. However, there are many times, when an image may have an entire end result, than originally anticipated. Even so, one thing I have always tried to achieve when creating any art image. That is, to balance the color scheme, not weigh too much on any one area, but rather distribute even details throughout. So that any viewer, up close or from a distance, will hopefully appreciate it's entirety.
