Tree Man

Tree man. Coloured pencils on watercolour paper. Ulla Hennig March 2012

There is a challenge on the Fantasy and Sci-Forum on WetCanvas, and it is called “Dryad” (tree nymphe). I don’t know whether Dryads are only female – in my imagination however the image of a male tree nymphe arose…

And together with it a dream began to form itself – the dream of illustrating stories with my coloured pencils, either writing stories around them and getting both on paper and uploading it to my website or to scribd, or having a story in mind, writing it down and illustrating it. Maybe I should not call it a dream but a goal, a very distant, thousands of miles away goal, but a goal nevertheless. Defining it as a goal however means thinking about the way the goal can be reached one time. Two things are necessary: to get more confident with drawing figures/objects/nature/animals and to get more confident with colour. Which means: PRACTISE, PRACTISE, PRACTISE!

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.
