Rhododendron – finished

Rhododendron. Coloured pencils on drawing cardboard. June 2013

This is a contribution to the June challenge of the Botanic/Floral Forum over at Wet Canvas. The reference photo was provided in the challenge thread.

I find rhododendrons very difficult to paint because of their frilly petals. I took the artistic license to simplify the reference. The last step of the process was to dip one of my very small paper stumps into a bit of baby oil and use it as a solvent.

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.
