New Zealand Artist-Fraser Williamson

Room 2 have been looking at a New Zealand Artist, Fraser Williamson's. He illustrates in many New Zealand's school journals and stories within the journals. Here is a link to his website http://www.redshark.co.nz/. We decided to paint a theme of a deserted island using his style of painting.

We like his paintings because they very unique and different. His painting are done in a cartoon style with a South pacific feel.

What is really awesome is that Fraser Williamson has commented on our Pictures!!!!

    Hi there Room 2 Burnham School. It was very exciting to realise that you were studying my work and I loved the paintings you did of the deserted island. I can see the influence from my work with the lovely wave patterns and the birds and trees. Thanks for the encouragement you give me to keep on working because I know that you have enjoyed what I have done. I am working on a book right now about how crow got black feathers and I am working on some paintings for an exhibition in new York next year so everything is very exciting. Now that I know someone is looking at my web site I will have to put some new work on there for you. All the best with your work and kindest regards from me here in my little studio. Fraser
