Gift Card – Big Poster Potsdamer Platz Berlin
The format of the “Gift Card – Big Poster Potsdamer Platz Berlin” is panoramic (545 x 203 mm / 21,5 x 8 inch).
It represents the place of Potsdamer Platz with the Berlin Philharmonie located 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 as artistic tools I used for this illustration:
- sketch book (Watercolour Paper “GS”- fine grain, Format 31,5 x 23 cm -12,40″ x 9,05″-, 280 g/m2 -140 lb-)
- 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.
The illustration is also on my blog “Traversée d’Encres”.
