Title: Shirley Created Art - Chinese Xieyi -0229: Peaceful Peonies-07 My 30th Painting in the US
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 50cm x 100cm (19.69inch x 39.37inch)
Completed Time: Wed, July 22, 2009
Remarks:
It is my 229thChinese Xieyi Painting and my 399th picture since 2003, the 28th picture that I have created in 2009 and the 30th painting in the US.

Wednesday morning, my 4th quiz scored 9/10. The good news made me want to paint. So, I continuously explore how to create a white peony, meanwhile I wanted to try a new way to create the room and branches of the peonies, according to my art text book.

Anyway, I misunderstood the simply words in the book. It just writes ^After painting with greet + brown, to cover it with dry ink ̄. I thought that I should do it after whole of the painting was finished, so that the braches seemed like strange in this painting.

Then I understood that I should do the second job after I created the branches, instead of whole of the painting. I smiled to myself and then, I created the other one with pink ^ Warm -- Peonies ̄ and to correct the problem in this painting.

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