Berlin Postcard

Berlin Postcard - student project

I've been looking for inspiration for this Berlin postcard browsing through the city and tried to express the atmosphere of the famous Alexanderplatz district, which was named in honor of a visit of the Russian Emperor Alexander I in Berlin (a piece of Russian history, heh)

For the effective composition the shape of famous Television Tower (Fernsehturm) worked just great.

Berlin is a wonderful diverse place with lots of museums and monuments, but for this card I wanted to show more local and authentic city, that's why the famous East German tram is here:)

I've been using Schmincke gouache paint (that's my favorite choice for now - the pigment is awesome) and Caran d'Ache white.

Mixing everything on porcelain pallette is already enough for getting the real artistic mood!)
