Title: Shirley's Art Works 574 & Chinese Xieyi 310: Xiyi Practice - Shirley Learned to Paint It from Mr.Ren Bonian in CAFA, March 15, 2011
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 39.5cm x 134cm (15.55inches x 52.75inches)
Completed Time: March 15, 2011
Remarks:
This is my 310th Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 574th painting since 2003. Also, it is my 57th assignment in China Central Academy of Fine Arts.

I felt that my 17th Chines Mogu Painting was a little bit fail for I feel the Shu Xuan paper does not seeping and the color water was on the paper for a long time, so that made many scars, maybe it was just the reason that was working well for me to color the big size leaves. So, I tried to paint it on the other kind of paper that can seeping water and try to find out of a better style to work on it.

Therefore, I decided to re-paint it with Chinese Xieyi Style, to use the Sheng Xuan paper's seeping character, to

After I finished the work, I did feel this time, the paper worked quite well, but the color seemed like a little bit dirty. So, I would like to try once more and to find out of the reason why the colors were dirty?

How do you think of this painting? Do you enjoy it?
