Offer Turtledoves and Set them Free
Offer Turtledoves and Set them Free(cover)
There used to be a group of turtledoves in the forest.They live happily in the forest every day.
Every new year's day,people will go to the forest to catch turtledoves.
The people sent all the turtledoves to Zhao Jianzi's house for his pleasure.
Zhao Jianzi looked at a cage of turtledoves,and was very happy.So he ordered people to take out gold and silver and give them to everyone who offered turtledoves.
A man visited Zhao Jianzi's house.He was strange to see these turtledoves and asked Jianzi what he wanted these turtledoves for."On New Year's day,the release of turtledoves is a respect for the living,"Jane replied.The guest listened and said,"if you really pity these little creatures,it's better to order that they are forbidden to be caught.Catch and release,grace is not worth sin.”
Hearing this,Zhao Jianzi thought it was reasonable and immediately ordered to release the turtles.
The doves returned to the forest and lived a happy life.
This is the first time that I have created a complete picture book,and the courses I have learned since I was transferred to the academy are very rich and interesting,especially the art class,which makes me,a person who never thought of painting,start to try painting creation.
The purpose of the ancient Chinese classic fable of"Offer Turtledoves and Set them Free"is to warn people that we can't just talk about form and effect,and that hypocrisy is ridiculous.After a series of processes in the creation of picture books,including the initial collection of a large number of materials,the idea of typesetting and sorting out the sequence of fragments,I first realized the complexity and difficulty of creation.But also because of this experience,I have a new understanding of painting.Whether it's the teacher's explanation in class or the private talk after class,I am most impressed by the word that"the standard for judging the quality of painting is not like or not,but whether there is a unique thinking in the painting.".This makes me no longer blindly confined to imitating other people's paintings,but boldly create according to my own ideas.
Thanks very much for this course assignment,which made me meet my new self.
