really liked it

The protagonist of this book is Juan, a slave of a rich painter Diego Velazquez. Juan's job is to help Diego prepare for painting by getting the paint ready, and stretching canvases. Juan thinks of himself as an artist too, he learned to paint bu watching Diego. Painting is forbidden to slaves, but Juan still tells his secret about loving to paint.

This book was great! I would recommend this book to readers who want to enjoy a book with an older time period. Even though this book takes place during an older time, it's still a good book.

If i were to rate this book out of ten, i would give it a seven. It was good enough to keep me interested in reading.
