Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi 0148: Sweet Smell
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 67 x 67cm
Completed Time: Thursday, July 26, 2007
Remarks:
This is the 148th Chinese Xieyi Painting-- Freehand brushworks that I created in my art lesson Thursday night.

It is for about 2 weeks, my teacher has not offered me an art lesson since I had my travel. So, I asked my teacher to comments my last 3 pictures that I created totally free. :-)

Below are the marks that my teacher gave me:

I created 5th combined painting got 90 marks.

I created 6th combined painting got 80 marks.

I created 7th combined painting got 85 marks. :-)

After painting some landscape painting by myself, I was asked to create a picture with flower and birds. So, I created it. My teacher was satisfied with my work, so, I got 90 marks.

In the ancient Chinese painting theory, people sorted Chinese painting as:

Figure Painting (portrait)
Landscape Painting
Flower and Bird Painting

I have painted many flower and bird painting, some figure painting. I have just created my own landscape for 7 weeks. Right now, suddenly to be asked to paint flower and bird, I did feel that was easier than a landscape.

How do you think of this picture? Do you enjoy it?
