The Beast and the Beauty

The Beast and the Beauty. Watercolour pencils on watercolour paper.

There’s lots and lots of trolls in the internet, mostly very evil looking creatures. What I had in mind when I did this was the story of the beauty and the beast – with the beast being very unhappy about his beastly shape and looking, and a desperate desire for beauty.

The troll in the drawing above is angry and desperate; I leave it to you to imagine his relationship with the orange red flower. Is the flower bowing down to the troll in order to uplift him or in order to mock him? Everyone is invited to invent his or her own story…

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.
