Hello everyone! Sharing with you all a few paintings of the Great-billed Heron that were inspired by my time spent traveling in the outlying regions around Yangon, Myanmar, along with some of my travel photos from within Yangon itself.
大家好! 这里有我在缅甸一些幅画作以及我的灵感来自大嘴鹭的照片. 也有其他缅甸的照片.
I was there for two weeks to observe the wildlife and to tour Yangon's art galleries. Myanmar is surprisingly untouched. It hasn't been highly urbanized and it was wonderful to see. The borders haven't been opened to tourists for very long.
我在那里两个星期，去看野生动物和参观一个画廊. 缅甸没有现代化的城市, 非常美丽. 缅甸最近才向游客开放.
The photos were taken with the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 with 75-300mm lens, and the paintings were done on traditional Chinese rice paper with traditional Chinese Watercolors and Chinese ink. I will do a post soon describing the process of painting on Chinese rice paper, as it's very interesting, delicate work.
这些照片是用 Canon EOS Rebel SL1 with 75-300mm lens，这些照片是用传统中国水彩画和中国墨水在传统中国宣纸上完成的. 我想尽快写一篇文章来描述中国宣纸的绘画过程.
Here are a few gems from my explorations around Yangon:
I was fortunate to connect with a local Yangon oil painting artist who brought me around the city to various galleries. Her father was a well known Burmese sculpture artist and hearing the stories of their lives was fascinating.
这是我在Yangon到的一位正在制作传统油画的艺术家. 她的父亲是一位着名的雕塑家, 他们的生活故事好有趣.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
