This is My 916th Painting I have completed since 2003 and it is my 48th Chinese Gongbi Painting and the 325th Assignment at Chinese National Academy of Arts Since Oct 7, 2011.
I painted this painting first time in 2011. It was sent to a friend in 2012. Therefore, I tried to paint it once more.
For me, I rather than to work on a new job, and I do not want to repeat to do something. However, enjoy my little bird, then I wanted to repeated it.
I painted this painting with another landscape painting together from Oct 2 to Oct 11, 2014.
After working on it for 7 days, Professor Han Xuezhong, the Head of Teaching Department did not satisfy my work and thought I did not work seriously enough, so that a classmate responded that Shirley was the most serious student... With a big smile, I thought of the words of Professor Han: When I thought which student has a future, I required him or her higher. So, I continued to work on it until my tutor said Yes. :-)
In fact, two of my tutor said that I had done a good jobs on the 5th day... :- )
Can you imagine? According to the requirements of Professor Han Xuezhong, I have changed all my work tools. Now, no matter my pencil, colors, thin silk, ink stick, ink stone, brushes and the washer of brushes have been changed new and on a high level.
With the words of Professor Han, " Since you paint a so little painting for so long time, why don't you use the best materical to paint the best picture? "
The good news was: Professor Han said my last water lily has reached the requirement.
How do you think of this painting? Do you enjoy it?
