Title: Shirley Created Art -- Gouache --0123: A Corner of the Snow Mountains
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35.5cm x 25.5cm
Completed Time: Sat, March 30, 2008
Remarks:
This is my 123rd Gouache Paintingand It is my 15th painting in 2008.

I started it in my my art lesson Thursday night. I did not satisfy with my working even though my teacher had given me 85 marks. So, I continued to work on it Friday night and then, I completed it Saturday night.

I have been to the Jade Dragon Mountains in Yunnan twice. It is really a wonderful feeling to live in the Ancient City of Lijiang that has a history for 500 years by its foot. When you look at the snow and the white clouds over the mountains under the blue sky far away, you cannot imagine that there are so many flowers, birds and trees just around of you... Yes, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is just the snow mountain that is nearest human being in the world. When you are living by it, the feeling is just like to live in a fairyland...

With the beautiful recalling, I completed this new painting. But, I do not think that I have mastered the way to paint trees because the trees were in my mind but I did not see them with my own eyes when I was painting. So, I think that I do need to paint or sketch from nature much more.

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