Vancouver Art Gallery

On Tuesday I went to Vancouver Art Gallery with my classmates for my Fashion Elements course. The name of the gallery was "Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters

The Cone Sisters of Baltimore". There were paintings of 2 sisters in 1880's who collected the unique and great paintings of some of the artists of their era. We had a gallery leader who showed us around and described a few paintings in the gallery. While he was talking I was taking notes and drawing the same paintings. Now I have a great collection of quick sketch of our visit to vancouver art gallery. We also watch a 20 minutes movie upstairs in the gallery which was created by Yang Fudong, Fifth Night. Great great piece of art! 5 cameras capturing one scene, but you won't able to see other cameras, and the whole story was so mystorious. I think this is something that people in film industry must see.

Now I have to choose one of those paintings in the gallery and draw 6 flats and illustration. fun! I put 2 pictures of my quick sketches... 

This is one of the paintings I drew from quickly in the gallery because we were not allowed to take pictures. I got this from internet.
