Title: My Sketch from Nature-140 - Haitang ( Crab Apple Flowers): Shirley's 270th Assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts -April 5 - 7, 2014
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 35.00cm x 44.00cm (14.00 inches x 17.00inches) Pen on Sketchbook
Completed Time: April 7, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 6th pen sketch - painting from the nature at Chinese National Academy of Arts in Beijing since March 25, 2014 and be done April 5 - April 7, 2014.

One day, when I came back from painting the Yinqiao flower, I found a crab apple tree in the yard of the school was blossoming. I was so excited for its flowers bigger than the other same trees.

So, as soon as I finished the Yinqiao flowers, I went to paint it.

But, because their flowers were too high to see clear, so, after painted it twice, I went to another small trees in the other place. After working on it 5 times, I completed this little painting and got good comments of classmates and tutors who have seen it.

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