Wismarplatz during the last days of winter


The brown wash on the right froze while I was drawing - I had to take it all inside and add most of the lines at home.

And some people on public transport:

  1. beautiful pictures! by the way: usk.berlin-member Felix Scheinberger gives a hint what to do if watercolor freezes in his awesome book "wasserfarben für gestalter": don't paint with water, use alcohol instead. vodka or obstler for example. of course you can also take a sip from time to time to warm yourself up ;)

  3. Thank you!

    Bo, I know, I know, but it doesn't work on this paper, too aggressive and leaves dark stains.

  4. Beautyful colors on Wismarplatz. Your people in public transport are from 2 days one in pencil, the other in ink? I must try that.

  5. Yes, I tend to layer my people drawings in different media - pencil/ink, different colors, or the first layer in water soluble ink, wash it over and then the second in something else. It is a fascinating way to play around with them!
