Title: My Pen Sketch from Nature-145: Chinese Roses: Shirley's 282nd Assignment of Chinese National Academy of Arts -May 1- 6, 2014
Artist: Shirley Yiping Zhang
Size: 60.00cm x 41.00cm ( 23.62 inches x 16.14.00inches)
Completed Time: May 6, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 12nd pen sketch since March 25, 2014.

May 1, on the first day of the national vacation, I got up at 5:30a.m. and went to paint from the nature at 6:30a.m.

In the early and fresh morning, I found a group of Chinese Roses by a fence and wanted to paint them. At once I found the problem that I was in the high heel boots, as long as I went near the flowers, the heels into the ground. So that I had to sit down from far away to paint it.

Then, since the second day, I have been in the gym shoes for I have to paint from the nature every morning before I enter the classroom.

To be honest, I have painted many roses before, but, this is the painting most difficult time for me. Because I did not make a good beginning, and there are only few flowers by the street, so that many times I was thinking of how to fix the structure.

Anyway, after going to paint it 9 times, finally, I complete it, even though there are still many problems in it.

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