Big Poster Potsdamer Platz
This poster is panoramic (545 x 203 mm / 21,5 x 8 inch) and represents the place of Potsdamer Platz located right in the city centre of Berlin.
I drew this urban sketch on the 12th of November 2009 directly at the location in Berlin Mitte-Tiergarten. My point of view was from the museum complex Kulturforum in front of the orchestra hall Philharmonie.
As a technique I applied wash drawing. And artistic tools I used for this illustration are:
- my sketch book (Watercolour Paper „GS“- fine grain, Format 31,5 x 23 cm -12,40″ x 9,05″-, 280 g/m2 -140 lb-)
- my calligraphic pen („Pilot Parallel Pen“- 2.4 mm)
- 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
I was sitting on the steps of the Kulturforum because from where I can have a beautiful overview of Potsdamer Platz. It was sunny and I needed around one hour.
This illustration is also on my blog „Traversée d’Encres“ („Through The Inks“).
