I am absolutely stunned by these paintings. They were painted by Kieron Williamson the artist from…ughm, first grade–he’s six! Art critics have been stunned by his eye for composition and colour, leading him to be placed in a 12 week adult class paid for by a local art gallery.
Apparently, he was not interested in art until a holiday last May gave him inspiration to start drawing boats–he now specializes in landscapes. Kieron lives in Norfolk, England (near where we used to live!)…and get this, he wakes up early every morning to paint before school. Bless his little cotton socks! I think I could learn a lot from his economy of line/pain and the minimalist style.
