Title: Shirley's Art Works 680-Chinese Mogu Practice -025- Shirley's 52nd Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts - March 24, 2012
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 42cm x 30cm (16.53 inches x 11.81 inches)
Completed Time: March 24, 2012
Remarks:
This is my 25th Chinese Mogu Painting and my 680th painting since 2003. Also, it is my 52nd assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.

When I am updating this page and writing this note, I cannot help smiling to myself.

Why?

This is my first pure Chinese Mugo painting practice in CNAA, and it has just been 1 anniversary since I painted my first Pure Mugo Painting in China Central Academy of Find Arts.

Last March, I just came back from Australia, stayed in Shenzhen for changing the airplane, as soon as I reached Beijing, instead of going back my living place, I went to the classroom to listen to the Chinese Mogu lesson by Mr. Zhang Gong in CAFA.

That was the first time, I learned this concept of Chinese Mogu formally. Then, in Nov, 2011 and March, 2012, Dr. Wu Bing and Ms. Pan Ying taught us to paint Chinese Mugo in CANN again.

After using this kind of skills in my painting partly, tonight, I could not help making a new and pure Chinese Mogu painting practice.

For this kind of painting requires very wet colors, just like color water, every new job should be done when last job (color) is medium dry, in case it is too try, the new job would not be melted with the last job, therefore, I could not leave from the classroom before I completed all of the jobs.

Therefore, I was locked in the teaching build alone, so that I had to jump out of the window third time since I came to the school. :- )

Even though my legs ached sharply at the time I jumped down from the window and the ache has been keeping until now, I do not feel too bad since I have completed it already.

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