This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled A Gleam Before the Storm by Benjamin Williams Leader shows a rustic landscape with a main cottage and a nearby stream under eminent stormy skies that are showing brightness just before the storm. The striking and vibrant colors are absolutely gorgeous, and the resolution of the pattern's colors almost make it look like a photographic image. This would be a beautiful pattern to stitch for your dining room, family room or study depending on your color scheme in those rooms. In any case, it is sure to brighten the area wherever it is placed (hopefully in an area of prominence) and is well worth showing off. No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
