1963This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.
A beautiful full colour illustration board painted by John Worsley for a page of Wee Willie Winkie. The vibrant colours and Willie's animated features make this a truly splendid painting full of dynamic charge.
The thin pen lines adding subtle definition coupled with the bold highlights, bubbles and watercolour wash achieve a beautiful result.
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 Royal Families, banks and Colleges.
