Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0189:Peony Practice -11
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 57cm
Completed Time: Monday, August 25, 2008
Remarks:
This is my 189th Chinese Xieyi Painting and it is my 353rd painting since 2003, the 47th painting that I have painted in 2008.

I am interested in trying with different colors to create peonies. So, after I tried with pink, yellow and purple, this week, I tried with a mixed golden. :-) Also, I am trying to create my peony with different way to make the flowers more beautiful. :-) I am enjoying playing the colors.
I got up early in the morning and painted before going to my office. I do find that the morning painting has brought me a calm heart and fresh spirit.

I am very happy when I found that I have really known how to make a flower fresher and more alive... Anyway, I did not think that the bigger flower was good enough. So, I tried to paint another one in the next morning. :-)

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