Title: Shirley's Art Works 727 & Chinese Xieyi 399-A98 - Shirley's 118th Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts --July 16-17, 2012
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 105.00cm x 226.00cm (41.34inches x 88.97 inches)
Completed Time: July 13-15, 2012
Remarks:
This is my 399th Chinese Xieyi Painting and my 727th painting since 2003, the 118th assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.

In the last two weeks in CNAA, I made a plan for myself -- to master the way to paint wistaria. So, I tried to paint some big size wisteria for I wanted to paint it as many as possible, try to have the ability to paint wisteria independently.

I drafted this painting July 13, but I flew to Wuxi to see my father. Therefore, I continued to paint it in the afternoon July 14. However, when I colored it, I just found that I was working on a paper for the Chinese Gongbi.

Oh my God, I had to re-draft so that I completed on July 15.

As soon as I found my tutor Mr. Lu Wenqing in the office, I asked him to comment it. Mr. Lu told me that the birds a little bit grey. I should paint them with more layers. I should do the same thing on the flowers. I did remember what he said and tried to improve my work in my nest painting. :-)

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