Baa Baa Sheep Farm - Emily L

Baa Baa Sheep FarmEmily Law

青青草原 - 羅肇婷

The Qing Jing Farm in Taichung, located 1750 m above sea level is fondly nicknamed the “Baa Baa Sheep Farm.” It features European style buildings, making it an interesting site for nature sketching. May in Taichung, is the season of change where Spring meets Summer. Emily Law went there with her fellow classmates. They experienced the laughter of good company, the joy of witnessing the coming and going of fog and the clear blue sky, the opportunity to translate their observation onto their sketch books. Emily has training both in Western and Chinese painting. This painting is a good demonstration of how she made the best use of both skill sets to depict a European setting with Chinese brush strokes and paint.

青青草原,暱稱羊咩咩草原,是台中的青境農場,處於接近海拔一千八米的山上。農場有模仿歐洲的堡壘及建築物,有濃濃的歐洲農莊味道。五月春夏交替,深山中每天霧氣變化不定,一時間霧茫茫,突然間又天青盡現。羅肇婷與一班志同道合的畫友同行到此地寫生,隨意雅聚,笑聲滿山谷,當天先用鉛筆速寫把這景緻留下,回家再以水墨設色完成。


雖然所用的是中國繪畫媒介與素材,但西方畫作的感覺非常強烈,原因作者喜愛遊走於中西藝術之間,很自然地把中國畫與西方藝術共融於畫作中。
