Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache--0112: Harmoniousness
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Thursday, Jan 10, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 112nd Gouache Paintingthat I painted as my 11st practices within the past 43 days.

My teacher went to Guangzhou for a business trip for a while, so, I had not had an art lesson this week again. Instead of waiting for a lesson only, I taught myself via reading some Gouache Painting Learning and I have painted two little pictures. :-)
I am thinking that if I had no a job in the company, I would be able to paint for whole of my time. :-) I never feel bore when I paint, but I feel much enjoyment during the painting process. :-)

When I read the art teaching books, I have a strong feeling that a good artist has to be a good person at the first. An excellent artist has to be an excellent person at the first. The art skill is important, the art culture and a person's moral quality are more important to an artist. :-)

So, even though I want to paint for whole of the time, I still keep working as good as I can do and to order my weekly feelings and thoughts in my office Saturday morning, I still take much time to read, to feel, to think. :-)

Thursday night, I painted this picture and I would like to express the harmonious between the little brook and the trees. :-)

I do not know why the picture on my easel is yallow more and seems good, but, on the photo, it seems like so red and worse?

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