One of my favourite forms of artistic cross training is watercolour painting. I have been painting with watercolour for longer than I have been making fibre art. Doing it as cross training allows be to concentrate on the process rather than the product which makes it all the more enjoyable. If it turns out well – great – if not, it was fun doing it.
This is Samson, my cat. He is gray with touches of yellow but it was much more fun to use purple and accentuate the yellow. I think I got his eyes.
