Ms Susan LEE Shu-Shing is a native of Shandong and grew up in Taiwan. She studied Calligraphy, both Chinese and western painting, seal carving and photography with famous teachers and scholars.
Ms Lee taught fine art at high schools, art schools, tertiary institutions in Taiwan. She migrated to Sydney around 1990 and has been teaching Chinese painting at Christian Coummunity Aid (CCA), Eastwood weekly for more than 20 years without remuneration. She has taught innumerable students and her service to the fine art education and to the Chinese Community in Sydney is enormous.
On 12 October 2016 on my way from Sydney to Hong Kong on QF127, I saw the magnificent aerial view of estuaries into the sea in Northern Territories. The views are breathtaking. The rivers with their branches and sub-branches look like the feet and claws of a dragon. The land is in various colours of brown, yellow, beige and white. Soft and harmonious pastel colours are excellent media to draw these amazing views.
I should be most grateful if anyone can help me identify some of the geographic features of the river mouths. Your guidance will be greatly appreciated.
