Butterfly – finished

Butterfly. Markers and coloured pencils on watercolor paper. March 2014

What I learnt doing this piece is that markers, coloured pencils and watercolour paper (not too rough!) go together quite well. I like the radiant colours, and the contrast between the butterfly on the light green leaf and the pattern of the background.

The only disadvantage – if you can name it that – is that it takes way more time to paint than painting with acrylic paints. Painting with markers and coloured pencils means taking your time. It is nothing that can and should be hurried.

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.
