Title: Shirley Created Art -- Chinese Xieyi -- 0172: Little Birds & Plum Blossom Practice--02
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 53cm
Completed Time: Thursday, July 10, 2008
Remarks:
This is my 172nd Chinese Xieyi Painting that I painted in my Art Lesson. Also, it is my 336th painting since 2003, the 30th painting that I have painted in 2008.

May 22nd -- July 6th, I involved almost whole of my free time into English learning for 3 English examinations last Sunday, so that I often felt having an itching for painting.:-)

So, this week, even though I am extra busy, sometimes I have to have 3 or 4 meetings in an afternoon and sometimes, I have to drive to 3 or 4 places within 5 or 6 hours. Right now, at 10:20am Saturday morning, 3/4 of my weekend time has been arranged by the company already. Even though I do have no time to create one of my own paintings, I keep attending my art lesson. :-)

Thursday evening, my teacher continued to train me to paint plum blossoms. Instead of attaching 1 or 2 kinds of colors on one brush, I was trained to attach 4 kinds on one brush at the same time and to create a new art result. I was really interested on the new ways and I did feel that there are too many things that worth to learn in the Chinese traditional painting field.

My teacher thought that except the bamboo, I had done a good job. So, I was given 92 marks. :-)

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