This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.

A gorgeous watercolour depicting Wee Willie Winkie arriving in Thebes with Hannibal the Baby Elephant in tow on a raft behind the boat. The lovely purple and yellow washes Worsley uses to create a sense of light and reflection in the piece. Using special techniques including scraping a razor along the water in order to create sparks of reflection and white highlights.

Please note: This beautiful painting will be shipped with 2 Free smaller watercolour panels painted by John Worsley for the same adventure.

Worsley, who spent time in a P.O.W. camp after being captured in Yugoslavia during WWII, 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.
