1970This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.
John Worsley paints with extraordinary panache, vibrancy, and attention to detail. The artist, who also worked as a portrait artist for the Metropolitan Police, uses his extraordinary skill to create life like characters both adults and children can identify and empathise with. In this case, the hero of the story, Wee Willie Winkie and his friends have travelled to Japan.
A fabulous mast head scene painted for a Wee Willie Winkie story appearing in Treasure magazine on March 28th 1970.
Worsley, who spent time in a P.O.W. camp after being captured in then Yugoslavia, 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.
