Poster Mehringplatz – Berlin
The Poster Mehringplatz Berlin represents an historic place near Hallesches Tor. I drew directly at the location in the district Kreuzberg: Map.
As a technique I applied wash drawing (ink and water). And the artistic tools that I used for this illustration are:
- a sketchbook beige (textured paper, Format 23 x 15 cm – 9 ” x 5,9″-, 125 g/m2 – 427 lb.in2-)
- a calligraphic pen (“Pilot Parallel Pen”- 2.4 mm)
- 2 fineliners Staedtler® pigment liner 0.1 and 0.05 mm
- a fineliner Faber-Castell® PITT artist pen black 199***
- 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
- colored pencils
- watercolour dry pastels
History: Due to its circular shape, Mehringplatz was initially named „Rondell“. On 22 October 1815, it was renamed „Belle-Alliance-Platz“ after the Battle of La Belle Alliance,
an alternative name for the Battle of Waterloo. „Rondell“ was the southern entrance to Berlin. This „Friedenssäule“ (Peace Column) was constructed in 1830.
The illustration of the Poster Mehringplatz Berlin is also on my portfolio Urban Sketches.
