Title: Chinese Bai Miao--031: Peony & Little Chickens Practice
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 60cm x 60cm (23.62inches x 23.62 inches)
Completed Time: Friday, September 15, 2006
Remarks:
This is my 31st Chinese Bai Mao.

Baimiao is painted with line by Chinese ink. It is a kind of Chinese Gongbi painting.

At the first, it is a draft of a Gongbi Dancai or Gongbi Zhongcai, then it was developed to be a single art form by Chinese ancient artist Li Gonglin(1049-1106).

Also it can be colored, in case it has been colored, if we colored it with a light color, we call it Gongbi Dancai; if we colored it with heavy color, we call it Gongbi Zhongcai.

I have painted many Chinese Bai Miao in the past years. But, this is the first time I painted it on a piece of silk. :-)

It has a very special taste. The skill to paint the line is the most important part for a Mai Miao. :-)

Do you like this kind of art form? Do you like I color it to be a Chinese Gongbi Painting?
