Liza, I have exactly the same response to Chinese red - your street scenes are brilliant, powerful and the use of the Chinese red in them is exciting!!!

Hi Marcia, I am pleased you are enjoying this series. As it was wintertime, Beijing had quite a "grey" appearance and the reds popping up here and there were so uplifting. My eyes were always drawn to them. Thank you!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you so much, Nancy. Your enthusiastic comments motivate me to do more of them! Positive feedback is so important and very much appreciated. Thank you!

I can well imagine you liking Chinese red, Barbara, as you always use such bright and vibrant colours in your paintings, which makes them sing!
Painting these "memories" makes me also feel a bit as if I was still there. Thank you, my dear!
