People like ants

Winter is a difficult time to draw in Berlin, I have to recognize that I need a little push to go out drawing on Winter. But last week we got the permission to draw in the building of the Akademie der Künste in Pariser Platz. With the glass facade overviewing the square, it was warm and cozy to draw inside one of the most iconic landmarks of Berlin: the Brandenburger Tor!

I did two drawings one with twig, ink and watercolor, big format where I spent around 1 hour and half,

The second in 18 cm x 60 cm paper that took me around 30 min. to draw on site. I use a pen with permanent ink. But I did the coloring with watercolor later at home.

Here are some details to see the people closer.

You don’t need much detail for people in this scale. Important is direction and attitude.. I added dots of colors to make them more interesting and give a sense of movement.
