Laughing Pumpkins. Acrylics on acrylic paper. Ulla Hennig, November 2012

I know – Halloween is over, but somehow those pumpkins wanted to be painted. I imagined them having fun, rolling on the floor, laughing. I found out that you can get a very nice dark orange by mixing yellow ochre with vermillion.

Regarding the background I first put down a layer of burnt ochre, but it didn’t seem dark enough for me, so I painted over it with black, mixing the two colours on the acrylic paper.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
