Skyros Man 6

The sixth Skyros man is to the right of the fifth - another one of the flower-holding ones.

Again, I worked his pantaloons in Bokhara stitch. The variegation in the blue silk thread gives a nice effect.

I went for red lips on this one - the pattern calls for gold. The lip shape I ended up with is a bit duckbill-like, but is fine at the distance it will be seen.

Because I like to use up the thread in my needle before moving to a new colour, I have a few bits of the next man done by the time I get there - I like that.

Two more men, plus motifs, to finish this panel.
