The butterfly and the J

This is a free colouring sampler page from Dover publications. I transferred it to cardstock paper (while simplifying it a bit), inked it and then used my markers for the blossoms, the leaves and the letter, and my watercolour pencils with my new waterbrush for the background.

Due to the fact that you can determine pretty well the amount of water in the waterbrush you can work with it on cardstock paper. I haven’t used my watercolour pencils for more than half a year and found out that I lack some violets – especially blue violets. Well, isn’t that a good reason to visit an artstore?

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.
