Postcard Insel der Jugend Berlin
The Postcard Insel der Jugend Berlin represents the island “Insel der Jugend” (Island of Youth) in the parc “Treptower Park”.
The bridge “Abteibrücke” (Abbey Bridge) joins the island and the parc over the “Spree” river. It’s a really magic place and soo romantic! I was sitting near the river and I observed the beautiful colors of autumn. In the background-right you can see the forest “Plänterwald”.
Kulturalarm e.V., the operating company of the island, sees the place as an experimental ground for all forms of art and so there are many cultural events for young and old alike including live music. @Kulturhaus Insel Berlin.
I drew this urban sketch on the 27th of October2014 directly at the location in Berlin, Alt-Treptow.
As a technique I applied wash drawing (ink and water). And as artistic tools I used for the Poster Insel der Jugend Berlin:
- a sketchbook (Watercolor paper, fine grain- Format 31,5 x 23 cm -12,40″ x 9,05″-, 250 g/m2 – 0,05 lb.ft2-)
- a calligraphic pen (“Pilot Parallel Pen”- 2.4 mm)
- 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
This illustration is also on my blog “Traversée d’Encres”.
