I've been slowly slowly stitching around this fish project, no real plan in mind except for a small pencil drawing of a beautiful real life fishy image I found online. It's another slow project which is kind of relaxing. I used watercolour on the calico first to give it some colour. I like the way the pigment spreads and collects at the edges.
I have lots of projects in my head and in my sketch book, but real life sometimes takes over and when a certain little 2 year old comes to visit all my artistic pursuits are put on hold while we explore colour pencils and textas, read books and watch Totoro!
