Fairy Glen

Oil on Mountboard! 16 x 20 inches

Now here really is a blast from the past. I was digging out my watercolour paper today, having been hand-painting frames for a week, and discovered this oil painting of mine, circa 1968, 45 years ago, phew!

Having painted it on mountboard, it's deteriorated over the years as can be seen with the mildew on the left-hand side .  

I think I've got better over the years......hopefully!  This should give hope to any of you folks who despair at your efforts. Next one WILL be a new one, a watercolour if all goes to plan....


  1. Your expertise shows through - lovely lights and reflections albeit not up to current high standards ...

    is there a market for vintage PB masterpieces?

  2. Thank you Sue. There'll only be a market for vintage 'masterpieces' when I'm gorn!

  3. J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qui se dégage de cette merveilleuse aquarelle... Il y a tant de sérénité et de délicatesse avec cette pointe de romantisme...
    Gros bisous

    1. Merci MartineAlison - en fait, c'est une huile, peinte quand j'avais 14 ans. Je pense que j'ai peint d'après une photo dans un calendrier, mais c'était il y a longtemps !
