View Full Version : Old railway bridge

05-17-2006, 10:22 AM
this bridge is located near the center of stuttgart. There is a scrap metal and waste collecting company nearby. The place is not typical, but very tempting although it is a kind of junk space. I did this charcoal drawing for the Stuttgart project (http://stadtlandschaft-stuttgart.net).The size is ca. 19"X25".
On the same day I could do 3 sketches which can be found here (http://www.edition-handdruck.de/stuttgart/skizzen/skizzen.html). Most likely I will publish a faksimile book of the sketchbook,which shall contain about 70 sketches in size of 18X26 cm or 7"X20"
C&C always welcome.

Greetings, Martin. Charming work.

I liked visiting your site, too. Even more interesting drawings there. What is the date for the show?

Hello Wes and Bobbo
thanks for looking and for the compliments. I am not fully on good terms with this drawing. I found that I was not able to display the construction with all the interesting details in an adequate way and therefore it might have been better to use a more rigid handwrite and simplyfy things a lot. I still feel it contains to much details which thin out the message.

Wonderful loose style you've got there! I loved visiting your site. It's now in my favorites folder. :D

I think it looks fine Martin, I like your sketches too. Maybe you have been looking at it too long and you will like it better when you haven't seen it for awhile. Its a very nice drawing. Lori

Thank you Rain and Lori for looking and your comments. Yes it has happened to me quite often that only after some time I could accept my work.
