Remarks:
This is my 9th Chinese Gong Bi painting. I drafted it 2 weeks ago and started to color it with Chinese Gongbi style in my art lesson on Friday night. I had to take two brushers in my hands, one was for color, the other was for water. When I colored a piece of brusher, I needed to make the color to be pushed by the water brusher to somewhere suitable.

My Chinese art teacher always asks me that " Teacher teaches you one thing, student understands three similiar things by yourself". So, my teacher just directed me to color one flower on the right and one of the birds in the art lesson. Then I had to color the other parts by myself as a homework. So, whole of the Sunday, I worked on coloring this picture from 8:30am to 10:30pm. for about 14 hours. You have seen my Gouache painting already last Thursday. Do you like this style painting or that one? What I wanted to do is to combine both of the them, to create my own style. My art teacher supports me to create something by myself, but thought the composition of my picture seemed not very natural and the colors on the gouache were too bright... :-) So, I am learning to correct them in the Chinese Gong Bi painting...

How do you think of it now?:-)
