Previously I talked about the restaurant Five Happiness and its Imperial Room. Now I’m going to talk about the main restaurant that re-opened with a whole new look. What fascinated me most is that it did not have the red stained wood that I’ve seen in other Chinese restaurants. The décor was an inspiration for this painting.

For my background I used some colors from the dining room furnishings. Then I added dots using colors I found in the robe that is showcased with spotlights. I painted them in a curved pattern.

  1. Interesting! It seems that 5 Happiness has redecorated in the Trey Yuen style!
    I like the colors in your painting. Those embroidered robes always blow my mind. So beautiful!

  2. Very nice interpretation, Mo. I like the way the pink color kind of pops out. It makes the painting both cheerful and peaceful in combination with the other colors you used.

    Thank you both.

    I didn't have to make up any colors for this painting. They were already there in the interior design and the robe. BTW, I sold this painting during the summer.
