Hope – Work in progress

Hope. Acrylics on Acrylic pad. Ulla Hennig December 2013

It has been almost two years that I bought my first set of acrylics, had a go with them, decided that I didn’t like them and gave them away to my lovely neighbour who was only too happy to paint with them.

I don’t know what happened, but suddenly I wanted to have a second go and bought a small set. I’ve still got a pad with acrylic paper, with a small piece of paper left over. So I sat down and did a rough thumbnail with a ballpoint pen. I wanted to tell a story with my painting, resp. I wanted to make the beholder think of a story, inspired by the song “islands in the sun” by Belafonte.

There’s still a lot to be done – the hills in the background need some contrast, and I also want to add some white to the waves in the foreground.  But the first step has been made.

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.
