Whale Shark

Whale Shark

Whale Shark. Coloured pencils on drawing cardboard. Ulla Hennig February 2013

There was a time when I hated doing backgrounds. In fact I didn’t do them. But now I really enjoy doing them after getting the pencil sketch down on the drawing cardboard. In this case here I particularly enjoyed using all my shades of blue and even some greens. This drawing is not meant as a realistic drawing of a whale shark swimming in the sea. I had the movement of water in my mind and the multitude of shades it can have, and in contrast to that I painted the big, rather static form of the whale shark.

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.
