Mysterious Castle

Mysterious castle. Watercolour pencils on watercolour paper. October 2014

This was done on the last sheet of my rough watercolour paper. I found it very difficult to work with pencils on that kind of paper. However, I had to use it up – two things I cannot throw away – paper to draw or paint on and books.

But I did some research on other watercolour papers, and finally I managed to identifiy the German equivalent for cold pressed and hot pressed paper. (in Germany, we have rough watercolour paper (“rauh” in German), cold pressed watercolour paper (in German called “matt”), and some hot pressed papers, called “satiniert” which means “like satin”. I went to a nearby art store and bought a pad of Canson cold pressed watercolour paper. Just now I am working on a new painting, and I am quite satisfied with the paper.

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.
