Title: My Sketch from Nature-106: Shirley's 66th Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts -April 27, 2012
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 41.00cm x 31 (20.05inches x 16.14inches) Pen on Sketchbook
Completed Time: April 27, 2012
Remarks:
This is my 15th sketch from nature since April 7 and I painted it in Beijing Botanical Garden April 27, 2012.

I enjoy peonies and I have painted many peonies, but, I did not really paint it from the nature yet. So, no matter how far away from and no matter how I am inconvenient because of my health ? my doctor asks me to lie on the bed as soon as I work for about 2 hours and when I feel uncomfortable, I decided to go the nearest place to paint it.

Therefore, I got up before 6:00am and reached the Beijing Botanical Garden at 7:07 am in the morning, then I completed this painting at 9:30am.

I planned to it bigger with more flowers, but, for the sunshine was too strong on my face, so that I could not open my eyes to see the flowers clear, so, I had to change a place to paint.

During I was working, many people came to see me and some of them took photos of my painting after getting me agreement or did not ask me at all...

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