Folds and fabric

Paper napkin. Watercolour pencils on drawing cardboard. September 2014

Another drawing exercise – drawing and painting folds and fabric. I had a green paper napkin for reference. The painted napkin looks much more fabric like, like one of these fine napkins you get when you’re eating in a classy restaurant.

I used drawing cardboard as support. It is a heavy one, 250g, and it takes the water from the brush without buckling. It also may be that I’m getting slowly used to squeeze most of the water out of my brush before diluting the pigment of the watercolour pencils.

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.
