This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.

A gorgeous depiction of Wee Willie Winkie waving his magic travel ticket whilst his friend Hannibal the Baby Elephant carries his suitcase in his trunk. The pair are running to catch a train on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. This watercolour was painted for a page of a Wee Willie Winkie story by Worsley for issue 39 of Treasure magazine. The gorgeous wash creating the backdrop sets a lovely scene for the more detailed locomotive with it's highlighted rivets and plumes of steam.

Please note: this painting comes with a free additional watercolour by John Worsley painted 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.
