Painting White Aster and Red Hibiscus on Antique Xuan Rice Paper by Henry Ly

Antique Xuan Paper is available at our online store:

This is the second painting I did out this Thanksgiving Bouquet that we got from farmer's market last weekend. I combined the white aster with a red hibiscus in a Zhe-zhi or "cut-flower" style, which as you can see is quite different than the "Still-life" in western paintings. I realized that the green screen may distract some viewers and I have tried to minimize that effect in editing this video. Thanks for letting me know what do you think,

My special thanks to Linda for sending me hibiscus pictures.

Thanks for watching and I appreciate your comments and suggestions!
