Max finished this piece yesterday. It is still impossible to show the colors of the interference watercolor. Well, that is also the beauty of interference watercolor, the colors keep changing if looked from different angle. You just have to see it in person.
He named it "Carry on".
Crow quill pen and ink, watercolor
See if you can find how many grasshoppers are in this.
Max finished this piece last week. It is very hard to capture the colors of the interference watercolor on the wings, and the gold leaf on it.
Pen and ink, interference watercolor, gold leaf on paper. 19"x24"
When you have three, four WIP pieces on hand, you might finish them at around the same time. :)
Louis finished this pink peony piece last Sunday. It is called "Popping Peonies" for now.
He still has about 3 pieces that he is working on. And for Max, we have lost track. LOL
Watercolor on Bristol paper, 11"x14"
It took Louis about a month to finish this crow quill pen and ink sunflower piece. Consider the size 19"x24" and all the details in it, he actually did it very quickly.
He hadn't done crow quill pen and ink for quite a while, so the accidents during the creation of this piece, include knocked down ink bottle twice, made huge stain on the carpet, and made dirty ink spots everywhere etc.
Boys talked about their art with Vivian at Sunday Forum at The Peoples Church of East Lansing this morning.
The audience was very nice, so the boys weren't nervous at all. Their first time speaking to public went quite well.
Thank you, Susan Patterson, Sue Mills and the rest of the people in Fine Art Committee for giving the boys an opportunity to show and talk about their art!
The boys had a great time being interviewed by WILX Kirk Montgomery.
Thank you so much, Mr. Montgomery and Kyle for spending time with us! It was fun! :)
Thank you, Vivian for being us every step of the way!
This will be aired on May 16 at 6PM on WILX 10.
Played with iMovie last night, created this video. It was so much fun!
The first part of the video was shot in my basement. Mom and Dad spent the whole weekend framing and hanging the artwork on the wall. :) The second part was shot at the "Nature Through Curious Eyes" exhibition at The Peoples Church East Lansing where the boys will give a talk this coming Sunday.
The open reception of the boys' 2nd solo show will be on May 21 (Sunday) between 12 noon and 6 pm at The Arty Party Studio. All these artwork, prints and more will be there. Of course, the boys too. :)
Max & Louis
