Title: Chinese Xieyi--055(Flower & Bird): Dream Of The Spring...
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 70cm x 59cm
Completed Time: Wed, Dec 7, 2005
Remarks:
This is my 56th Chinese Xieyi freehand brushwork. My teacher asked me to complete it with 1 hour. But, I spent for 1 hour and 40 minutes for I thought and painted the birds for a while. I did not be allowed to make any draft with a pencil and must create the picture with my brusher and colors directly. So, I have to make the birds in my heart very clear and made sure where my brusher should be, otherwise, in case one brusher is wrong and whole of the picture will be distorted. :-)

It is very tight for me to have my art lesson in the evening after the work in the company, so, I had no time to have my dinner at all. Anyway, I am happy for I have painted the plum blossoms and birds together first time with Chinese Xieyi style. After all, it is spring after the coldest and most difficult time. Right? : -)
