Max originally designed the cicadas for the design request. Though the cicadas are too complicated for the needs. He then transferred this into an finished piece. He is working on more simple ones for that company.
Louis finished his first painting in 2018. This is his second chrysanthemum piece. He has become very familiar with what chrysanthemum looks like, so he just did this whole painting from his memory and imagination.
Watercolor on Paper
Max finished his largest piece so far. This one is called "Bug House".
The size of this piece is 22"x30". He used crow quill pen and ink, watercolor and gold leaf in it.
Because of the interference watercolor and gold leaf, the colors on the bugs' bodies change when looking at the artwork from different angles.
Nothing is better than starting the new year with a design request from a company for their new product.😄😄😄
The request is to have cicada in the design. The company even understands how the boys work.😂 They want them to do their own style without much requirement.
This will be a huge challenge for the boys, they are very excited about it.😁They plan to have some design with just cicada, some with flowers and cicada.
This is Max and Louis' second full year in doing art. We are so thankful for all the support and encouragement they have received. It means a lot to the boys. It makes them wanting to do more, and work harder.❤️
The boys have been creating larger pieces than last year. They continue developing their art sense and skills. Can’t wait to see what they could create in 2018!
Happy New Year!!!!!!
We just came back from vacation a few days ago. Louis finished the final touch of this spider mum piece yesterday. It is probably his last piece in 2017.
Again, he combined watercolor with graphite. No name yet.
Max finished this beehive last night. The name for now is "Liquid Gold" :)
He used a lot of interference watercolor and gold leaf in this piece.

The size of this piece is 22"x30 (full sheet of watercolor paper). Louis started this piece in August. He putted it aside when he was almost done to work on the pencil and watercolor one. He just finished it yesterday.

Winter is coming. And this piece is called "Gray Day Made Bright".
Louis finished this piece yesterday. It took him a month and half.
He really enjoyed combining watercolor with graphite this time.
