Title: Shirley's Art Works 945 & Chinese Mogu 042-A278 - Shirley's 349th Assignment at Chinese National Academy of Arts- Dec 16, 2014
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 27.00cm x 27.00 cm ( 13.38inches x 13.38 inches) Chinese Ink, Colour,Tea on the Silk
Completed Time: Dec 16, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 42nd Chinese Mogu Painting and my 945th painting since 2003.

Also, it is my 349th assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.

I drafted this painting many days ago. I drafted it on a piece of paper and used a Chinese silk over it to paint because I did not want to leave any trace of the draft on the silk. However, when I did it, the color dropped the other side of the silk quickly so that my drafted was stained.

Then I realized: Chinese Mogu is different from the Chinese Gongbi, a gongbi painting's color is wet, but less but a Chinese mogu's color is quite wet but it needs a lot.

So, when we use the Chinese silk to paint a Chinese mogu painting, we should not use some different method to work.

Therefore, I put it down for about 18 days, until I completed my 5 big size painting, just I re-worked on it.

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