Weckruf (Wake-Up Call) or…A FAST Forward Making off a Canvas

The image of this window with some landmarks of Hamburg kept coming up when I was sketching things in my art journal and on my iPad. So I figured it was time to finally just put it on a canvas.


Here is a FAST Forward Movie of the Making off (it is not a step by step tutorial- although most steps are extensively in there 😉 ) – I hope you enjoy it. I have a List of all Supplies used below

I had lot’s of fun playing with the new Liquitex Professional Paint Markers – loved that there are so many ways to use them and the colors are just to die for .



24cmx30cm Canvas
Loads of old Book Paper


I have some other ideas for this image – color wise etc…so you might see this coming up again in a different look 🙂

Would you like to see more fast-foward videos in the future?

Have a wonderful day 🙂
