Les Twins – the collective name for French twins, Larry and Laurent Bourgeois – are the dancing duo who have spent the last 7 years in the international spotlight, setting a new bar for modern dance.
Here’s a sample of what they do. Sit, watch, enjoy:
“So, what about the art?” you ask.
The brothers Bourgeois are also both 6ft 4in tall with an established modelling repertoire under their belts… so it’s not all that surprising that I discovered my penchant for portraits late in 2014 with this piece:
I am still working on my light and shadow skills, so what better way to force myself into that mindset than by only using shades of grey? I used Heritage Craft Acrylic paint in shades of Black, Grey, Dove Grey and White.
It worked well, but something was a little off…
In April this year, I tried another one, but this time on paper… and discovered the problem. The Dove Grey is a little bit too light. Still, though… it’s worth a look.
Heritage Craft Acrylic comes in so many shades of grey, each with their own nuances, but the colour I need for these portraits needs to be mixed and perfected from within the range.
I’ll get there…
