Yellow Birds and Laptop Skins

This is my thrid illustration with Chinese painting style. I have learned Chinese bird and flower painting before when I was at collage time. In Chinese Painting, we don't paint the background. It is left to white so that the black ink is beautifully contrasted with the paper. It is very interesting to see the illustration result with the purple background. Order the Skins

now that you mention this fact about the backgrounds, it does come to mind several chinesse paintings I've seen where white, black, gold and red are the predominant colors... always loved them!
This one is very pretty Lily!

Marian, I don't think I'll paint in Chinese ink and rice paper. But I'll try to use illustration to see if I can produce the beauty. I love the lines and colors of Chinese Painting.
