Poster Nordbahnhof. – Berlin
represents the train station « S-Bahn » Nordbahnhof in the north of Berlin (district Mitte).
As a technique I applied wash drawing. And the artistic tools that I used for this illustration are:
- my red Moleskine® sketchbook (Soft Paper, Format 21 x 13 cm – 8 ¼ » x 5″-, 165 g/m2 – 564 lb.in2-)
- fineliner Staedtler® pigment liner 0.1
- fineliner Faber-Castell® PITT artist pen black 199***
- 2 paint brushes (fine and medium) and water
- wash (ink and water)
- colored pencils
I was sitting on the pavement front a beach volley open air. You see the street Julie-Wolfthorn-Str. which represent the boarder of the districts Mitte and Wedding. During cold war it was too the boarder between west and east Berlin. So this train station was a « ghost » station, because the train were forbidden to stop there, on the same place of the Berlin Wall .
On the left of the image, there is the open-air museum « Gedenkstätte Bernauer Straße ». And on the background you can recognize the famous tv tower of Berlin (« Fernsehturm Berlin »).
