The Hunter

The Hunter. Acrylics on Watercolour paper.

In the beginning there were triangles and the decision to mix ultramarin and white, in order to get several shades of blue. I had this yellow-orange underpainting, and I found out that it was almost impossible to cover that with ultramarine. Then I remembered that you should put on white first, and then the colour of your choice. I did that and it worked a lot better. More and more the triangles changed into something like a flying bat, and I gave it a white beard, a snout and two blue eyes.

I not only wanted to practise colour mixing but also working with a small round brush. I felt that I had far better control of it than when I tried acrylics for the first time!

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.
