Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache--0109: By the Sea
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Thursday, Dec 27, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 109th Gouache Paintingand this is the 8th practice that I have painted within the first 5 week since I started to learn to paint this kind of pictures. Also, it is my 2nd painting this week.

Thursday evening, my teacher could not offer me a lesson for having something business else in the college. So, I taught myself and I completed this picture in the same evening.

Then on Friday, via the opportunity to have a meeting in our mother company, I went to the biggest art book store to buy 13 art books on teaching how to paint gouache. :-)

Can you imagine? During the past 4 years and 7 months, with my learning of Chinese painting, I have had over 300 art books on Chinese painting. Now, during the past 5 weeks' gouache painting, I have bought over 20 books on it. :-)

I do love this kind of paintings for its beautiful colors. Its color will not changed after it is drying as the Chinese painting colors. So, I am attractive and I feel that there are so many pictures that I can paint... :-)

My teacher has not seen this picture and I have not known how many marks I will be given yet. So, now, I would like to hear your opinions at the first :-)

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

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please write to shirley@ebridge.cn, You are welcome to publish your opinions in Forum . :-)
