Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache--0108: No Title
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Tuesday, Dec 25, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 108th Gouache Paintingand the 7th practice that I have painted within the first 5 week since I started to learn to paint this kind of picture. :-)

People asked me why I especially enjoy painting landscape. I can not answer it very clear, maybe for I especially enjoy the Great Nature? :-) In my heart, no matter a tree or a river, a flower or a piece of grass, the land and the sky, they all have lives. When all the beautiful things have been combined on one picture with a suitable style together, they would create something more wonderful and something excited... :-)

So, during the process of painting, I do feel a beautiful enjoyment in my heart indeed.

Anyway, when I was painting this picture, I did not think that I have mastered the way to paint the inverted reflections of the trees in the water. So, I would like to see the true inverted reflection of the trees in water on Saturday via taking part in the mountain climbing of the company. If the weather allows, I will paint or sketch from nature during the others are climbing up the mountains there. :-)

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