Undercover Market


Lovely painting for a little story. Very cute

This is great fun Paul.

Your granddaughters will love it Paul.

Thank you Faye,David and Denise for your kind comments. I’m sure they will Denise one of their favourite things is to sit and listen to stories, and help make them up as well.

I love this. It reminds me of an old fashioned greengrocer. I miss them.

Thank you Candy , the one the local council are forcing out is very much a old fashioned grocery. I have seen every ethic group in there shopping and you can buy one apple etc ,not pre packed bags.

Nostalgic hope it keeps on going like it

Thank you Romila and Moira for you kind comment.

Made me smile, good one Paul

Good one Paul!

Thank you Jacqueline and Katy for you kind comments.

24x32 cm watercolour on 200gsm paper. Every so often I do a painting that my younger granddaughters can use for a story.
