A Calendar full of Oberbaumbrücken for 2014


kalendar 2014 url_3

After having been asked by people to offer some prints for sale because buying original drawings is scary and what if I spill coffee on it and it is ruined forever?! I’ve finally come around to select some of my pictures for a wall calendar for next year. I chose my Oberbaumbrücken series because, on […]

More Oberbaumbridges


15 June, watercolor, 25 x 35 cm, 250 €.

Some earlier drawings from this series can be seen here and here. Currently I seem to have a tendency to ever more tightly defined series. Not “30 plants in jars in different media”, but rather “50 drawings of this specific plant in black ink”. Subjects just don’t get boring, I always want to keep going. […]

More of the Oberbaum Drawings


5 June, attempt at exact architectural rendering, watercolor over pencil. Gave up on the level of detail of the steel structure.

Reminder: I will show some of these at the Open Air Gallery art fair on this very same bridge on Sunday 1 July. My booth is number 10 — you’re more than welcome to come by and say hello if you’re in town…

This was without a doubt fueled by the workshop ‘Lining over Color’ I did with Richard Camara during the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Lisbon, although […]

Last Days’ Sketches Out and About


Somebody very neatly painted ‘MEDIASPREE’ where the ship’s name used to be, thus referring to the campaign ‘Mediaspree versenken’ (‘Sink Mediaspree’). This campaign is directed against plans to build new commercial buildings (under the heading of ‘Mediaspree’) using up much of the banks of the Spree, thus taking away access to the river from private […]

Open Air Gallery in Berlin


Preparation

I just had one hell of an exciting sunday. Or rather, almost two weeks. It was only eleven days ago that I learned that I would be participating in the Open Air Gallery art fair on Oberbaumbrücke in Berlin this year (I had applied in April, and hadn’t heard anything back). Then there were nine […]
