The Lady with the Hood

The Lady with the hood. Coloured pencil on drawing paper. Ulla Hennig, March 2012.

I could not resist buying some “Zeichenkarton” (drawing paper? Artist’s board?) and trying my coloured pencils on it. It is a very smooth paper, and I like how the pencils went over it. I had to keep them very pointed, and the smooth paper doesn’t take as much layering as the watercolour paper does.

“The Lady with the Hood” was inspired by a digital painting I found over at Deviantart, but the only thing which is similar to the reference painting is the idea of a human figure in the wood. I changed it into a lady, and I also changed the atmosphere.

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.
