White Lily – Work in Progress

White lily. Work in progress. Photoshop 7, Ulla Hennig February 2013

This time I ventured into the world of flowers. I had a reference photo for that, and I must say that I find it far more challenging to paint after a real reference compared with painting a fantasy-like image without any reference. I have to look very closely at the original, always comparing it with my painting. Where do the petals get darker? What kind of green is that stem really?

And here I think there is no big difference between painting with wet paints or drawing with coloured pencils and painting digitally, maybe with the exception that you can erase very easily digitally.

I am still working on this one. There are several parts which are not “right”, and I also have to think of some background. I will post the following steps in my next blogposts.

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.
