Retro Saturday


I found this the other day at Value Village. Water-colour is my favorite medium and this print  caught my eye.



This was part of a series called Portraits Of Britain. The pictures in this series are all from original watercolours by Philip and Glyn Martin.



I just assumed Philip and Glyn were a he/she couple until I looked them up online. They are brothers and have been painting together since 1983.....all over the world. You can check them out if you wish by clicking the aforementioned 'check them out'.

  5. Always love your retro Saturdays. I haven't commented in a while, but stop by often to see what you've been comtemplating, LOL. Watercolors are beautiful, and so hard to paint. That's why I appreciate them so!

  9. That is beautiful. I like the contrast between the simple, bright little houses on the shore, and the rugged ruins of the castle on the hill.

  12. *sigh* I haven't been to V V in such a long time. Great find, beautiful colours. Kind of odd that sibling paint together but it works for them!

  14. Oooh a lovely picture indeed! I have been to Jersey and it was fabulous, but an extremely small Island. I think it is only about 20 miles long.
