In the early days of the outbreak, out of fear and ignorance, there were a lot of voices on the Internet that rejected Wuhan and discriminated against Wuhan people. One day, she brushed up some weibo on Weibo, and she was really angry with the other party.
"From anger to sadness, at this time I realized that I really love the city very much." Later, she felt that this endless scolding war was meaningless, and determined to use her expertise to draw jewelry with the theme of Wuhan. Design drawing, I hope to show you a real and beautiful Wuhan.
In the beginning, Fang Longhuizi designed Wuhan's scenic spots and architectural landscapes. For example, the "Yellow Crane Tower" praised by many netizens: In the picture, the yellow crane crane's head is upward and the wings spread out in a guarding posture.

The mountains are green, the water is green, and the East Lake in Wuhan is Fang Longhuizi's favorite scenery. She was in love and married by the East Lake, and lived by the East Lake to watch spring, summer, autumn and winter, so she also integrated her life and emotions in the jewelry design drawings of Wuhan.
"East Lake in Wuhan has large expanses of metasequoia, which are particularly good-looking and more beautiful than flowers. There are romantic colors throughout the year, and waterfowls flutter."
A few years ago, Fang Longhuizi and her husband went to Luoyan Island in East Lake to play. For the first time, she saw a piece of metasequoia. Her husband told her what was the root of anger and explained the knowledge of migratory birds. She always remembered the beautiful scene at that time: the setting sun The waterfowls are graceful, and the autumn metasequoia forest is dyed goose yellow and fiery red. She painted the beauty and memories into the jewelry.

In the dozens of days of Wuhan ’s “closed city”, painting became Huizi ’s emotional outlet, and her creations are also increasing: Wuhan cherry blossom, Jianghanguan, Guqintai, reeds on the Hankou River Beach, Hubei Provincial Museum, gourmet snacks ... "I want to record it all in my own way so that everyone can see these beautiful things, and I hope that Wuhan will always be as brilliant as jewelry."
How to paint Wuhan into jewelry?
Painting Wuhan elements on jewelry is not an easy task. Fang Longhuizi admits that the landscapes such as cherry blossoms and Huanghelou are beautiful in shape, and the more difficult is the daily food such as hot and dry noodles. It requires both artistic arrangements and reasonable craftsmanship to make the state of jewelry. In a few days, it takes another four to seven hours to write.
These ingenious gourmet jewellery have also been talked about by netizens: hot dried noodles, Wuchang fish, heavy oil roasted plums and three fresh tofu, pork rib soup, spicy crayfish are all the most familiar Wuhan cuisine.
Eight years ago, Fang Longhuizi came to school in Wuhan from Jiangsu, and found that people in Wuhan love to eat while walking with paper bowls, and for the first time knew "premature". The "Yao Yao hot noodles" at the school gate has become the reason for her early rise many times in college. The hot and dry noodles with sour beans and crispy fried noodle nests, she said, were called a "floating" (Wuhan word "comfortable").
On the one side, the diners eat noodles, and on the other hand, the chef keeps burning noodles and fried noodles in the hands of the noodles. She wants to draw this lively street scene, so the left side of the item is just oil. The noodle nest of the pot is filled with boiling water and zlazila oil; on the right is a bowl of hot and dry noodles, decorated with green gems, which are onions and sour beans that you can choose.

But in another beautifully shaped "Wuchang Fish", she did not think about how delicious the fish was, instead she used the outline of the fish to draw a part of the Wuhan map. Among them, the gem is the location of the lake in the city, and the outline under the fish body is exactly the location of the Yangtze River. "It is a home-cooked dish on the table of Wuhan people, and it is also the symbol of Wuhan and the river."
In Fang Longhuizi's opinion, Wuhan is a "river and lake" city, so Wuhan people are also famous for their love of fish. During the epidemic, since the food purchase situation has gradually improved, whether it is friends and family in Wuhan or neighbors in the community group, everyone is thinking about "Living fish" and miss the umami taste.

I only saw the work of Miss Sister today. This city, guarded for months and nights, is so beautiful, watching and crying ... "

I ran to the bus station, crowded buses, sturdy drivers, lively streets, and blocked the school all the way. Ordinary is lucky. "
