Title: Shirley's Art Works 946 & Chinese Mogu 043-A279 - Shirley's 350th Assignment at Chinese National Academy of Arts- Dec 18-20, 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 20, 2014
Remarks:
This is my 43rd Chinese Mogu Painting and my 946th painting since 2003.

Also, it is my 350th assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.

After completing 5 big size paintings, I wanted to paint some small paintings, to rethink something about method to paint a Chinese Mogu painting on the silk.

Then you can not imagine how long I worked on the small painting. :-)

Once and once, I wanted to find the reason why the Chinese silk could not keep the colors there and what the difference of Chinese Gongbi and Chinese Xieyi paintings. :-)

Then I realized:

-- Both of the paintings use the lines.
-- To drafted a Chinese Mogu painting is similar to a Chinese Gongbi painting.
-- The colors are same, but Chinese Gongbi requiest the better materials.

Then the key is the water:

-- Chinese gongbi is wet, but the moisture is less; Chinese Mogu is wet, but its moisture much more.

-- Chinese Gongbi's color basically is wiped by the water brush, therefore, it is not too wet; Chinese Mugo painting¨s color is dry by itself, to keep the traces on the painting...

So, even though I did not satisfy this painting, I did feel I have gotten a lot among the experience of painting.

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