It's summer, and artists have returned to his island. By closely observing four artists with different styles, a boy hopes to discover how to paint the wind.
A young boy spends time with the summer artists-the flower painter, the painter of portraits, still-life painter, and the landscape painter-observing, learning, and finally challenging himself to paint the wind. The handsome illustrations are a combination of thick brushwork and texture from a vibrant color palette, splashed with light.
...each artist's sidekick dog, with a personality as distinctive as its owner's art.
