BERLIN, Germany [RESULTS]

Post by jaz999 » Sun Feb 28, 2010 12:29 pm

Hi folks,
Olga, Catalina + friend (sorry, I'm not sure I was told your name, was it Alliana?) and I met up at Potsdamer Platz amongst a mob of musicians. My crawl began first at the bus stop in Alt Moabit (the Korean Sushi restaurant "OK") with my zipper at the train station Ernst Reuther Platz.

After meeting up with the girls, we went to the Sony Center to draw the spike and the people milling about. I tried a semi-contour drawing of the sharp ceiling construction. It was also a good chance to practise gesture drawing with the people, who were all in constant motion.
Image
The rather cold and windy weather drove us back underground, and we looked for a warmer place to safely expose our tender artist fingers. The rather ritzy 'Oranium' next to the Jewish Museum in Oranienburger str. was where we unpacked sketchpads and watercolours (just wait til you see Catalina's paintings!) I am becoming a Yogi Tea junkie, hehe.
We had a nice view of people waiting at the street crossing or meeting up in front of the museum. We also drew some of the other cafe-goers and a digger on a construction site in Tucholskystr. I still wish we had a chance to draw the woman with the pair of parrots -a cockatoo and african gray perched on the handlebars of her bike... Maybe another time.

Wow, you were busy! You got some great sketches in there, and the quick gesture sketches look like fun. Yes, it's hard to sketch when your subjects refuse to stay still. :-) You did great!

Hi jaz999,
Nice sketches and thank you for such a full story!
I started with a sketch of passengers on a way to Potsdamer platz and 'Genaues gewicht' machine that told passengers their weigh is not ideal years ago. You can still see them on some stations.

After sketching Sony center which reminds me of a huge insect we got cold and moved to cafe Oranium.
Catalina and Amaia:

People on the street: to cross or not to cross?

Sehr gut, Berliners! Was ist "SketchCrawl?" auf deutsch?

-- that would be something like: "SkizzierKriechen" :crazy: sounds akward to me, though.

Jennifer and Olga! You both rock in Berlin.
It's allways good to see your simple barely lined sketches, Olga and your vivid spontaneous lines, Jennifer!

Thanks for sharing ... seems we're getting more, to make a "Schönes Wochenend Ticket"-Crawl in between Hamburg and Berlin next year ;)

-Oder Kritzelkriechen, haha. Nee.
Ich könnte es auch glatt mit "Spass" übersetzen. (I would translate it with 'fun')
Thanks Olga, Thorsten. The idea of a cross-city SCrawl sounds interesting. Drawing in the DB is fun!
