Karlene--I still haven't finished my Chinese Garden sketches, but I think works like yours might help me to see what to do. For example, your pavilion roof is great and it is so tricky--so different from our typical rectangular architecture. This is very nice.
Great color! The Chinese arden has a way of putting you in a different place and out of the city. I think we all love it for that quality.
Thank you Vicky and Deb. I just love this garden, such a sanctuary in the city! I have to admit that the day I did this it was sunny but quite cold out. I put in the main shapes on site but I also snapped a few photos and finished up the details and colors at home...is that cheating?
I am so delighted to see Your painting here Ms Karlene Lusby.There are all-to-few now-a-days paintings of Chinese Garden representations.http://www.chinesegardenscene.cnIf You are interested, I would love to feature this @ my educational website for China's Garden Art.SincerelyJohn
