    Nature calls

    This book tells the biography of a brave man who spend weeks at a time on Horn Island, where he capture great images for his paintings. Walter Anderson is an American artist that rowed across miles of open water to spend time alone and be close to nature as he possibly could. His experiences with nature were his inspiration for his artwork. The book states how Anderson prohibited his siblings from entering this secret room where he was the only one allowed. After his death his wife finds out what Anderson kept as a secret. It's a great informative picture book about the life of a great American artist.

    Watercolors At Its Finest!

    This is a wonderful picture book as well as a short biography about Walter Anderson. He is from the Mississippi Gulf Coast and would row in his boat twelve miles to get to Horn Island, which was uninhabited. He would spend weeks in his own paradise on this island sketching and painting whatever he saw, from the natural surroundings to the animals that lived there on the island. This American artist used watercolors to make his beautiful artwork. The book, to me, is all about his artwork and the colors and things he used to make them. The information about Walter Anderson is there as a crutch to let you know a little bit about such an unknown artist. Being a fan of watercolor artwork, the pictures are such beautifully crafted and I enjoyed turning every page.
