Water paint and black ink on thin drawing paper size14x11 inches.
I just found this picture in one of my drawers,in poor condition,being done on thin paper it has lots of wrinkles and has yellowed a little.I will try to glue it to card.I did the picture in 1965 scaled up from a small photograph which is long gone,and i can not find it on the internet.

I have just noticed that when the picture is held up to the light,there are several pin holes of light.I may have to put pencil rings around them from the back of the painting before gluing ,I will get some advice first.
This is really nice Dave. Lots of lovely detail.
I am a fan of watercolor and ink.

Very nice work! It has an amazing amount of detail. I liked working in India ink when I was young too. This is well worth putting the time in to save - best wishes on that. Well done!
