Title: My Sketch from Nature-107: Shirley's 67th 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 16th sketch from nature since April 7 and I painted it in Beijing Botanical Garden April 27, 2012.

After I completed the first sketch in Beijing Botanical Garden, I felt quite tired and I wanted to go back home. But, since it is very far away from my school, since I did enjoy the flowers and I did not think that I have master the structure between the wood part and the herbage part of the peonies, especially, I wanted to see and to remember the wood parts of it since this is the part I felt strangest.

So, I went to have a rest in a little shop and than I went back to paint another painting.

Anyway, you cannot imagine how many hours that I used to recovered from the tired of the 7 hours' work in the Beijing botanical garden? 15 hours + 2 painkillers. :-)

Anyway, I am really glad for the short trip, as soon as I feel ok on my body, I will go there once more... and try to learn more about peonies before it has withered...

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