Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi 0102: Autumn
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 66cm x 66cm
Completed Time: Wednsday, Oct 24, 2006
Remarks:
This is my 102nd Chinese Xieyi ? free hand and brushworks that I painted in my art lesson on Wednesday night.

First time, I learned to paint a leave of a banana + flowers and birds. :-) My thought that I can paint the detail part ok, but, I need more practice on composition of a picture, so, this is one to train my ability of a composition of a picture with a colored brush directly.

This paint was given 80 marks by my teacher for the part of the right and up was too high and too crowd. :-) And the flowers were too far away from the birds...:-) Also, the leaves of the bamboo seemed like some claws of birds once more...:-)

I did not think a lot when I was painting my birds, just wanted to have some ones on the picture to enjoy the autumn and to improve my ability of painting a bird with a colored brush directly... Also, every time, I do want to paint my birds are lovely and friendly... :-) Anyway, a friend thought that the two birds up were angry each other so that the one behind as their child was crying and asked his/her parents ? "Do both of you love me still ?" :-) Oh, my God, what an interetsing understanding about a same painting it is!

Maybe I should paint my birds more lovely with a big smile next time... Then, how I make a bird to smile? :-)

What is your feeling about my birds? Do you think of they are angry or they are smiling? :-)
