Water Elf – making progress

Water elf – still work in progress

Some days ago I bought my first Shin Han Touch marker. It’s got the colour name “Seaweed green”. I used it to paint the leaves on the head of the elf, and the leaves on his arms. You can get various shades of it when you use a blue marker first and then put the seaweed green on it, or you can even blend it with a lighter green.

While I was working on the elf I noticed that my “spectrum green” copic ciao was used up. Of course copic offers refill inks in all shades, but I will go and buy a Shin Han Marker to replace the copic ciao. Shin Han also has a “spectrum green” in their colour palette.

Yesterday my friend Claudia and I did the framing of my paintings for the Group Art Show on Saturday. I was again impressed of the difference a frame makes. I also realized how much art I have been doing for the last year, and how many mediums I had tried: acrylic paints, soft pastels, markers and coloured pencils. Of course I am still a bit anxious about showing my art pieces, but this time I definitely am more relaxed than last year. Indeed I am looking forward to Saturday!

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.
