Branching Out - Notes from German Expressionism at MoMA

The Sketchbook Challenge for April is "branching out" and I definitely added another way of sketching in my watercolor journal during this time.   

I went back to the German Expressionism exhibit at MoMA on Monday, and took notes and made some drawings from the Bridge and Blue Rider artists -  while listening to a Gallery Conversation by a MoMA employee.  I usually don't take notes and make small drawings in my watercolor sketchbook, but wanted to remember some of the images from the woodcuts and other prints he was discussing.

Definitely a creative way to remember things, by drawing them out! I love doing that too ^^ but of course, in engineering classes, drawing things out is hardly any fun and requires a fast hand, I guess it's still a good exercise

A nice collection.

I love this - German Expressionist drawings have always been among my very favorite pieces of art.

Interesting sketches and notes, thank you for sharing!

You've just described the perfect day. Sketching at the MoMA....ahhh! Really like these quick sketches. The silhouettes are very nice!

Loved seeing these. How clever of you to take notes!

loved your newest entries, particularly the Central Park sketches and the portraits.
I am going out to experiment with my new watercolor pencils.
