The exhibition is for artists of all ages. There were more than 200 adult artists submitted more than 600 pieces. Max's bee drawing is one of few got selected.
We are very excited about it because The Scarab Club is such highly respected gallery!
Max did an "experiment" with this bird drawing. He put watercolor wash on the paper, folded the paper, smudged the color. He inked the bird after everything was dry.
Spring is coming, our neighbors magnolia tree is blooming. Louis did this magnolia drawing while sitting in front of our neighbor's tree :-)
Max finished this tortoise drawing today. Here is a few pictures we took for the progress. Mom thought he would put swirl design on the shell because he did the watercolor on it in swirl.. Though nobody can predict what Max would do, he surprised mom again. LOL!
Max finished the lizard drawing and started a tortoise one. Louis is still working on farmer's market painting
Max finished this lizard. He started working on a tortoise.
Louis is still working on his farmer's market painting.
The first one is a bug collage. He originally wanted to draw a few bees. After he finished the bee on the right on white paper, he started another bee. Then he got ink on that bee's head. Max was very sad, he even cried for it
then mom came to rescue. She suggested to cut the drawing to a smaller piece. Though Max didn't want to do it,but that inspired Him. He decided to cut the bee off the white paper and glue it on a black paper.
He then worked on this piece on and off for a few weeks. He drew a wasp and a long neck lantern fly. He worked a abstract background , glued the three bugs on it.
This one looks very different from his other bug drawings.
The second one is a pen and ink beta fish drawing. He chose to make one rainbow fish, one red fish and one blue fish
Haven't update their work in progress for some days. Here is a few finished pieces.
Max did this three pieces abstract series last week. He first did a white ink abstract drawing. After seeing so many positive comments, he decided to do a series of it.
Mom got him some gray paper and white paper. He then did a white and black ink on gray paper. After that, he did a black ink on white paper.
The first picture includes all three drawings. Each drawing is 12"x12".
Louis tried the white ink too, but he hated it. it is not thick enough, so it was impossible for him to draw fine lines.
He then decided to try colored pencils which mom bought them long time ago, and nobody has ever touched them.
He mostly used white pencil and a little bit of yellow and two shades of green for this piece.
He also tried to draw bees for the first time. His bees are completely different from Max's for sure.
Louis is so into the black paper and colored pencil that he did a colored pencil iris flower drawing.
