Valley of Shadow – Thread Painting

The best needlepoint canvasses are hand painted in a way called thread painted.  This means that each intersection is clearly painted one color.  The individual colors in the palette for the piece are identified by reference squares on the right.  This gives the needlepointer clear direction in achieving the effect intended by the designer.  There should never be any question what color should be stitched at any point.
