Description

Big Poster Engelbecken

This poster is panoramic (543 x 207 mm / 21,38 x 8,15 inch) and represents a statue in the parc Engelbecken located between the road Legiendamm and the road Leuschnerdamm.
I drew this urban sketch on the 5th of January 2011 directly at the location in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

As a technique I applied wash (ink + water) drawing. And artistic tools I used for this illustration are:

  • my little black panoramic sketchbook that I began in 2010 (Format 23 x 15,5 cm – 9″ x 6″-, ca. 100 g/m2 – 342 lb.in2-)
  • my calligraphic pen (« Pilot Parallel Pen »- 2.4 mm)
  • fineliner Staedtler® triplus
  • 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
  • drypastels

I was sitting on a bank, front of the statue. Snow was everywhere, it was cold but a nice atmosphere. The contrast of the white and the colored graffitis was really beautiful. I needed one hour to draw this urban sketch and then I colored it in my studio.The statue is a goddess aus India, who looks in the direction of the church « Michael » after the lake, to the Nord. But there is no Hindu temple. Around the statue there is some lions heads and hindu figures. In spring and in summer, it’s a fountain.
Moreover this parc is located on the border of the Berlin Wall, that’s why it’s also called the « Berliner Mauerweg ».
This illustration is also on my blog « Traversée d’Encres » (« Through The Inks »)
