This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.

A beautiful illustration board painted by John Worsley for a page of Wee Willie Winkie. Willie's animated features make this a truly splendid painting full of dynamic charge.

The thin brush strokes add subtle definition, these coupled with the watercolour wash, caste a mysterious emphasis on the young protagonist's journey, as he, Hannibal and two mariners walk ashore after capsizing their small sailing boat.

Worsley, who spent time in a P.O.W. camp after being captured in Yugoslavia during World War II, achieves a fantastic liberation from the past by painting in such a fluid joyful manner.

Worsley's work can be found in The Imperial War Museum, The Maritime Museum, The collection of HM The Queen, The Savage club and many other private collections including those of Royal Families, banks and Colleges.
