I tried reproducing the colour using coloured watercolour pencils (Derwent), watercolours, and watercolours over black oil pastel resist.

I then stitched into canvas with DMC cotton floss using woven herringbone (different colours for the various stages of the stitch) and knotted stitch (blending the strands of floss to obtain new colours and variations). I also stitched with hand dyed threads. The results are all so different!
