Canal port

Here are further sketches I did at the Hildesheim canal port six years ago. I loved it most to sit there at the weekends... Everything around me was absolutly quiet, the huge cranes stood still and it was a very contemplative atmosphere. Sometimes I used the chance to inspect open warehouses and discovered crazy machines and such stuff... I will post drawings of these discoveries in the next days.

Brilliant stuf. By the way what pens do you use? They look so fine - or is that just the majic you make with them?

I enjoy your artwork. Nice lines and colorful washes make your art interesting.

Thanks for the nice comments.

@andrea: I made these sketches with the "Faber-Castell Finepen 1511 Document". Later I prefered "Staedtler Pigment Liners" of different line width because it has a better BLACK. Today my favourite drawing tool is a nib and drawing ink because it has the best BLACK :-) and produces more dynamic lines.
