Amazing Art

Pictured: Incredible watercolour paintings by boy aged just SIX | Mail Online: "A street scene from the paintbrush of a child usually involves triangle-topped boxes for houses. And often an unnaturally large dog.

But Kieron Williamson's attempts are so beautifully rendered that artists ten times his age will be filled with envy.

Experts have said that the six-year-old's atmospheric paintings, which began with harbour scenes and expanded to include rural vistas, animal portraits and landmarks, have perspective, shadow and reflections that demonstrate an ability well beyond his years."

Pictures at the link. As I said, amazing.

speaking as the world's most discerning painting critic i can say that i suspect this kid is actually doing these himself, that they are not being done by someone
else, and that they show a drawing and coloring and perspective ability far in advance of the norm for his age, and perhaps beyond the norm for most adults. and while not yet possessed of any actual "artistic" content, they are still more artistic than what a multimillionaire painter i have heard of and seen is churning out.
