Hornbill. Acrylics on Acrylic paper. Ulla Hennig November 2012

I’ve already painted that bird with watercolours, as you can see here. I now wanted to give it a try with my acrylic paints. The only thing I am not so much satisfied with is the colour of the sky. I think it is much too blue, although I added quite a lot of white to my primary blue. So there’s a note to oneself: Do more skies. Experiment with not only adding white, but also with adding a bit of gray. In order not to forget that note I’ve put up a list on my google drive which has all the experiments and practice exercises I want to do in order to get better with acrylics.

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.
