Title: Shirley Created Art--Gouache 076(Flower, Bird & Character ): Waterlily Girl
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 25.98inches x 20.87inches (66cm x 53cm)
Completed Time: Wed, May 5,2004
Remarks:
This is my first gouache character and it took me over 40 hours to paint it. I didn¨t know how to colour the character using gouache so I tried to colour it in the style of Chinese Freehand Brushwork´ :-) I learned how to paint the character from the book ^How to Paint Chinese Gongbei Characters ̄ by Wang Meifang, but I completely changed the background and made some changes to the character too. I would like to find a way to combine Chinese and Western styles of painting´. :-)
