The Birth of a Dragon

The birth of a dragon. Watercolour pencils and coloured pencils.

I am still experimenting with using watercolour pencils wet and coloured pencils on one piece. I love the cheerful and strong colours which I can get with applying wet watercolour pencils. I noticed that there is a difference between the results of using a brush to go over the pigments of the watercolour pencils and a q-tip. With the latter you can have more pressure on the pigments, getting a stronger colour. On the other hand I hate to produce unnecessary litter…

I also noticed that you can mix more easily with wet watercolour pencils. You can even use black to darken colours. I would not use black dry, but with water you can get a very dark brown putting black over brown.

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.
