Picture Book Review: The Artist

The Artist by Alison Binks

The Artist
by Alison Binks

5 out of 5 stars

A young boy goes out in his rowboat to paint the sea while everything is still and quiet in the early morning light. He is always thinking about painting and sketching. Even when he rides bikes with his friends, when he goes to his piano lesson, when he walks the dog along the beach, or when he goes sailing. He is always thinking how he would paint the waves, the sand dunes, or the dog. Each day is a new opportunity to paint the world.

I loved this thoughtful book! The story is reflective as the boy enjoys life through the lens of his art. You can really feel his love for art and for all his other hobbies too. His sailing and biking and music all fuel his passion for art and give him new perspectives.

The artwork is absolutely beautiful! I loved the art style and the colors and the composition of each page. The watercolors really give you the impression of movement and light. You can feel the wind moving on the page. So lovely!
