Title: My Sketch from Nature- 101: Shirley's 62nd Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts April 14, 2012
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 31.00cm x 41.00 cm ( 16.14inches x 20.05inches) Pen on Sketchbook
Completed Time: April 14, 2012
Remarks:
This is my 9th painting from nature after I came back Shenzhen to see my doctor during my classmates in Taihang Mountain to have the lesson of painting from the nature.

Every day I went to Beijing University Shenzhen Hospital, I saw these beautiful Chinese banana trees by the road and I wanted to paint them in person. So, before I flew back Beijing, specially, I took a taxi to see and to paint them.

Under the hot sunshine, I painted for about 3 hours until I could not stand the so many mosquitoes to bite me ... :-)

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