1971This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.
Wee Willie Winkie stares down at a group of mysterious houses built inside a crevice whilst waiting for his friends to join him at the top of the cliff.
Painted with a beautiful combination of watercolour washes and thin tight paint strokes, this truly is a wonderful piece.
Worsley paints a wonderful scene in greys and blues here for a page of the 1971 Treasure Annual.
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.
