Title: Chinese Xieyi--079(Flowers & Birds): Is Spring Coming?
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 45cm x 67cm
Completed Time: Wed, June 7, 2006
Remarks:
This is my 79th Chinese Xieyi -- Freehand Brushworks that I created in my art lesson.

My teacher thought that I should do more practice on peonies with Chinese Xieyi style. So, I was asked to create some peonies. Anyway, except following my teacher's thought to paint some peonies, what I also wanted to do is to combine my flower and bird painting and the landscape together, to create a feeling that the background is deep and far away. So, I tried to paint some mountains in the far away as a background...

Before I finished this picture, I felt that my flowers should have more changing -- now mine looked like in a basic same size. So, I should try to change it in my next picture.

I am thinking that since my teacher thought that the composition of my picture is good and novel, then, maybe I can create it with Chinese Gongbi or Gouache?

Anyway, I am in an emotion to create a new picture now, I am going to paint something new out...

What is your first feeling about this picture? Do you enjoy it?
