Rocks by the Sea


Rocks. Coloured pencils and Markers on watercolour paper. Ulla Hennig December 2012.

The reference photo for this piece was a greyscale photo. I changed the foreground and simplified it, and added the sea (there was only sky on the photo). What really had attracted my eye was the shape of the rocks and the textures, so I tried to recreate these with the coloured pencils.

Regarding the grass I not only used more or less all of my green pencils but also quite a few of my markers – the yellow green, the olive green and the lime green. Of course I had to be careful not to use a marker which was too dark. I found out that I could put green markers which are rather light on all kinds of green pencils, but not the other way round.

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.
