The blue Flower

Blue flower. Acrylics on watercolour paper. Ulla Hennig November 2012

In Germany, the “blaue Blume” (blue flower) stands for mystery and romanticism.

The greens on this painting didn’t come out of the tube. I mixed them out of my primary blue and primary yellow, adding a bit of white in order to make it opaque. I’ve read before that one shouldn’t use the premixed green out of the tube because it doesn’t look natural. So I made a mixing green experiment – and yes, it is true!

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.
