Flying Bird

Flying Bird. Pastel Pencils on Acrylic paper. February 2014

At the moment I am experimenting with paper and soft pastels and pastel pencils. I tried Ingres paper but I found it way too thin. Maybe I shouldn’t have used a brown Ingres paper – I got no vivid colours at all and did something which I rarely do – I threw the piece into the dustbin.

The paper I used for the flying bird which you can see above is acrylic paper. It has a textured surface  – a bit of a “tooth”, but it is smoother than the rough watercolour paper I used for my grassy rocks. I still have to try it for the soft pastels, because the bird is painted with pastel pencils.

I thought I’d put the bird into a frame which I coloured with my markers (haven’t used them for ages!).

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.
