Berlin has it all - part 4

Finally, I finished to scan my Berlin sketches!
As I said in my previous posts, I totally loved this city - its contrasts between East and West, old and modern; a lot of history, art and design everywhere, and most of all its special open atmosphere!

35th World Wide SketchCrawl - at Tel Aviv Port

This time our local USk group synchronized our monthly sketchcrawl with 35th World Wide SketchCrawl, so we could feel like a one of many cities sketching together at the different parts of the world ;-)
We met at the Tel Aviv Port - flourishing hang out area with many restaurants, bars and shops, with its rounded street lamps, wooden deck that its shape was inspired by the Tel Aviv sand dunes, and the sea, of course. At Saturdays it's was very crowded - full of street performers, strolling families, people on bikes and rollers and so on.
We've spread out at the port, and little by little I found my little stories to sketch.

It was a great sketchcrawl, please visit our blog for more sketches!

Berlin has it all - part 2

Our hotel was 100m from Alexanderplarz, so we started exploring the city from this very central point of the city. But not before we've tried out some traditional sausages with sauerkraut and beer, of course!

Here are some more pages from my small sketchbook, I did them mostly while eating or waiting for something.

Berlin has it all - part 1

I'm back from Berlin - the city which has totally fascinated me! It is very different from every European capital I've visited. I filled many pages of my small Berliner sketchbook I bought especially for the trip and some of my watercolor Moleskine as well. So I'll start to post them, little by little, hoping to share with you some of my experience.
Every journey starts from an airport -  and I love sketching people that busy by waiting for their journeys to begin!

Stay tuned - the more will come!
