Sunset #2

Sunset #2. Schmincke watercolours on Hahnemühle watercolour paper. Ulla Hennig, October 2012

Another sunset painting. I’d looked at various sunset photo references and built my “personal sunset” out of them. I am still trying to get smoother washes by wetting the paper before putting down the paint. I still find it quite difficult to get enough pigment out of my half pans in order to get nice mixes; the next time I will drop some water on them before I begin to paint.

But inspite of all these difficulties I am having fun with painting – something I could not imagine a year ago!

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.
