Also the colours didn’t have that richness I am used to when I painted with gouache paints or drew with markers. However the chalk pastels can be used for first layers, I think,

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.
