Embroidery: Dancing Ghost

Dancing Ghost, 2015
 I actually meant to post this before now and thought I already had (oops). This dancing ghost embroidery was inspired by a sketchbook drawing. I felt it needed a little injection of colour so I added the emerald green satin stitch and the lavender shoes to lift it a little. It's always funny how the medium dictates what you do. Everytime I think it will be a straightforward drawing- to- embroidery, it always ends up being changed after the outline is finished!
I've added the original drawing to the bottom of this post for comparison.
