Title: Chinese Xieyi -- 052(Flower & Bird): Chrysanthemum & A Little Bird
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 70cm x 40cm
Completed Time: Wed, Oct 26, 2005
Remarks:
This is my 52nd Chinese Xieyi ? freehand brushworks. I painted it in my art lesson on Wed. night. There are many ways to paint a Chinese Xieyi picture. This lesson, I learned to paint the lines of my flowers with brushes directly at the first, then, to color it instead of painting it directly with colors. After I completed the flowers, my teacher was satisfied and asked me whether I wanted to continue to pain a bird for my picture for being a little bit worrying I destroyed whole of the picture in case I painted one wrong brush on the bird. But I wanted to try. I had painted few hundred birds with a pen directly during I was in my trip in Lijiang, Dali and Kunming, Guilin and Yangsuo last year. I felt that I could paint it out directly with my color brushes. So, now you have seen a little bird on my picture. :-) I do feel its tail should be a little bit lifted. :-) Do you think so?:-)
