Brian Wildsmith :: lives for colour

Post by Alice Palace

Brian Wildsmith believes that beautiful picture books are vitally important in subconsciously forming a child’s visual appreciation, which will bear fruit in later life – and that children really do appreciate details as well as colour… I am in LOVE with this sun illustration and would like to look at it every morning!

He wants to help young people wonder at the world and to become close observers of the beauty and harmony in nature. With so much colour, his illustrations really sparkle with life, and I think they are just amazing!
