Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache--0111:Summer
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Thusday, Jan 8, 2007
Remarks:
This is my 111st Gouache Painting that I painted as my 10th practice since I started to learn this kind painting since 29, Nov, 2007, within the past 40 days.

I painted it Tuesday night while I "listened to" a TV situation comedy. :-)

I am very busy, but, I "watch" many TV programs. One hand, I am working in the securities news and information industry, I do not want to miss any last news and information relates to my work; the other hand, I have been used to do two things or more at the same time. :-) So, usually, I listen to some TV program by Bloomburge while I was washing or easting in the morning. I listen to some noon news and a funny TV play while I am eating lunch; most of time, my paintings was completed with many TV programs together... :-)

The listening and the painting make my ears and eyes are busy, anyway, it never delay my work at all, but, both of them often gives me some new ideas about my painting and the company work. :-) After all, except the content itself, many good TV scenes are just the best pictures. :-)

When I was painting this picture, I tried to distinguish the landscape in the far away, middle and near places since I did not do well in my last painting. My teacher has not seen it yet and I have not known what my teacher will comment and how many marks I can get. :-)

How do you think of this picture? Do you think that I have made a little bit progress?
