Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi 0156: Fat Crabs
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 67 x 67cm
Completed Time: Sat, Sat 6,2007
Remarks:
This is my 156th Chinese Xieyi Painting that I learned to paint in my art lesson Saturday night.

In the traditional Chinese painted field, orchid and crabs are something we must learn to paint. So, tonight, my teacher first time taught me to paint it. :-)

I did feel that the crabs are easier to paint than the orchid, because I have eaten many of them and I do have the feeling about it. :-) As far as orchid is more difficult to paint. :-)

People said the orchid will be practice for whole of a life and the bamboo will be practice for a half life. So, I will try to observe orchid much more and also to do more exercises on it. :-)

This painting was given 85 marks for my teacher thought that my crabs lack changing and the orchids and crabs need more practices...
How do you think of it? Do you like it?
