Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0190--191:Peony Practice -12-13
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 35cm x 57cm
Completed Time: Tuesday, August 26, 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.

After I completed my new painting on Monday, I was more interested in making new practice with new way. Also I did not think every flower on the picture is good yet. So, I created this one Tuesday morning before I went to my office.

Then I got my teacher's telephone call and told me that after looking at my pictures last week, he felt a very big problem on these pictures -- I lacked some knowledge of painting structure. So, he wanted to show me. I was touched by my teacher's responsible and I had art lesson --to listen to my teacher to tell me some traditional structure styles in the Chinese paintings. Also, in the lesson, I painted a new painting right.

How do you think of the two pictures? Do you like them?
