  • Dermot, very luminous quality to this one. Shadows are great and cleverly treated as the light refracts through the glass..... That a cool painting!

  • Can't not like this one, colour and subject are fantastic, well done Dermot. Yep, they were sixpence a bag in the corner shop. Had to take s lot of bottles back to get them!!!

  • I know I'm a girl but I loved to play marbles too Dermot, we use to call them 'nibs'. Gorgeous colours and reflections.

  • Hi Dermot, I don't know the origins of the name 'nibs' and I remember that the ball bearing ones we would call 'bollies' or 'steelies' and the opaque bluey white colour were called 'bluies' or something like that, they were my favourite ones. We would play into a scrapped out hole in the dirt or a drain cover, in the recess where the handle was.
    Thanks for the memories and your comment on my last post.
