Just take a look at the watercolor work of SIX year old Kieron Williamson. If I didn't know better I would have sworn these were by Monet. His mastery of color and shape makes all would be artists like myself want to cry. And just look at that use of perspective. WOW. I believe that there is a part of the right brain that either develops or doesn't develop in people. I can see the image in my head but I am unable to translate it to the paper despite all the artist classes and summer workshops I have attended. To have found such a skill at such a young age pretty much sets the path for this kid's entire life. I hope he sells a ton of paintings and gains all the fame that is his due. In the article they mention that he sent paintings to the Queen and Prince Charles to ask for their patronage. Now that would be a great use of their money. Aristocrats have always funded the arts and particular artists. Without such patrons the world would have been robbed of some of its greatest works. Cool stuff. Did I mention that he is only SIX?
If you need any further proof of this boy's talents I show you a watercolour painting by the GOD of impressionist painting, Claude Monet. What do you say now bitches?
