Some New Listings in my Etsy Shop


Done with a pen in water-soluble but light proof ink, worked over with washes of water and more pen lines on the still wet paper, ca. 25 x 33 cm, 250 €.

So recently I got reminded by somebody looking for Christmas gifts (Christmas doesn’t play a large role in my life, and I had completely forgotten that this is something people do…) that my Etsy store was all empty. I’ve changed that now and put up mostly some of my recent Berlin based sketches, the ones […]

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…

Oberbaumbrücke: First Glimpse of a Series I’ve been working on


Detail.

For almost a month now I’ve been sketching the same place almost every morning. I’ve started this as my fix of loose drawing before the day’s work of making huge drawings of Weinheim, which I enjoy a lot, but which also require a lot more planning and slightly tedious actions in their execution than quick […]

Last pages from my post-Kaufbar sketchbook


Page 16b

These were done at the end of March/Beginning of April, shortly before I handed the sketchbook in as part of my application portfolio for The Drawing Year. Hence I did not get around to scanning them until now. Feels like winter was a life time ago. I’m working a lot, even on another project or […]

Die Beute 1: Postkartengroße Skizzen


Nordstadt

Als ich letzte Woche wieder zurück in Berlin war lag ich natürlich erst einmal etwas krank im Bett herum. Inzwischen geht die Arbeit an der Weinheim-Ausstellung aber wieder vorran – hier erstmal die postkartengroßen Skizzen für die lieben Menschen, die mich mit 50 € unterstützt haben. (Ja, einige davon habe ich schon in anderen Scans […]

Travel Sketchbook: Second Day in Dolgellau


Spread 22

While in Dolgellau again, I was still very obviously influenced by that little book of drawings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh I had bought earlier. This is the first of the travel sketchbooks I bound myself – and I bound into some of them the luxury of extra space in the form of occasional fold out […]

Studies in Memory and Repetition


Boxhagener Str., pencil on location, colors/washes put in from memory at home.

Watercolors made in the mornings around where I live, repeating views, learning to put in the colors from memory. Also, some copies after and words on William Turner.

More March Sketches and a Double Sketchbook


Page 06b detail.

These are from the same sketchbook as the last posting, but it is a twofold sketchbook: It is half made from very bright, almost blueish Dorée 200 drawing paper, whose color I love, which is a good paper for dry media, and I have a 50 m roll lying around under my desk which will […]

Lots of People on Public Transport in January


A Lot of People on Public Transport

I’ve been looking for a way to make my public transport drawings ‘exhibitable’, take them out o sketchbooks somehow, mostly by using folded single sheets of different sizes, like here. This is another attempt, not just putting the people on a single sheet, but trying to convey the feeling of looking through a whole sketchbook, […]

…And Even More Plants


Detail.

More views of the same old plants, more experiments with how to depict them. I’m still looking into the relationship between color and line, but also between looseness and tight rendering. Drawing at home and having time made my drawings recently much more exact and detailed than they usually are, sometimes working in several sessions […]
