Little Bird

Bird. NeocolorII on watercolour paper

After having done quite a lot of abstract paintings I wanted to try something more real – a little bird, sitting on a branch. It is not realistic, though, but it can be identified as a bird, I think. Of course there is not bird in such colours – so it is kind of a fantasy bird.

I am still excited about the ways you can use those watersoluble wax crayons – in this painting I didn’t make any marks with the crayons and only applied the paint with a brush.

The background was done with a stabilo 68 pen. Some might wrinkle their noses because of the streaks; however, they didn’t happen – I very intentionally created them when I coloured with the stabilo 68 pen.

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.
