Our group of about 15+ watercolorists spent a few days touring and painting together in various picturesque spots in Tonglu County, China. Tonglu County is under the jurisdiction of Hangzhou City in Zhejiang Province. We were all invited artists in the 3rd Contemporary International Outstanding Watercolor Painters Nomination Exhibition that took place recently in the new Wetland Museum in Hangzhou.
Being one of the few foreign painters in the predominantly Chinese-speaking group that participated in this painting trip, I was not sure where we would stop next. But I was not worried at all because I found ample subjects to paint in every place.
Shenao is one such place. Very small but full of atmosphere and character, this historical village captivated me so much I could easily lose track of time painting on the streets. This painting that depicts typical street life in the village, was purchased by the Ye Qianyu Art Museum in Tonglu County to be placed in their permanent collection.
