The Dragon in the Forest

Dragon in the forest

The Dragon in the forest. Coloured pencils on drawing cardboard. Ulla Hennig March 2013

Some time ago I did a digital painting with the same theme – a dragon in the forest. You can see it here: Now I decided to have a go with coloured pencils. As you can see I changed the drawing a bit.

I used baby oil as a solvent almost all over the drawing with the exception of the left hand side of the darker tree. Here I wanted the bark to look lighter – almost white-ish.

The drawing has the size of 17×24 cm (6,7 x 9,4 inches), and I worked about 6 hours on it (from the pencil sketch to the last finish). Coloured pencils are definitely not a fast medium! But it is easy to store the drawing and the pencils away and to get them on the table again the next day.

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.
