The Eye of the Sun

The Eye of the Sun. Coloured pencils. Ulla Hennig, March 2012

What I had in my head was the eye, symbolizing the sun, streaming light in a kind of waterfall, in which three plants are bathing…

This time I tried something new with the watercolour pencils which I used in addition to “normal” coloured pencils: I dipped them into a small container with water. It is interesting how they differ in producing that rich colour I wanted to achieve. I especially used that technique with the leaves which I did at the end of my working process.

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.
