Title: Chinese Xieyi(Flower & Bird)--092:Water Lily Practice
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 45cm x 67cm
Completed Time: Wednesday, Auguest 16, 2006
Remarks:
This is my 92nd Chinese Xieyi -- Freehand Brushworks that I painted in my art lesson Wednesday evening. My teacher thought that I had done a good work on the water lily, the leaves. But the bird and grass part have to be improved.

Yes, it is true. When I was painting the birds, a telephone broke my thoughts suddenly so that I painted the first brush was wrong -- I should paint the belly of the bird at the first, but, I painted the head. So that I could not make my birds on the seed-case of lotus, so, I had to paint a caudex to make the two brides on it.

So, my teacher asked me to complete a picture with the way to keep a peaceful heart and hold my breath.

It is a taboo to complete a Chinese Xieyi picture twice.

Do you agree with my teacher? Do you like this picture?
