Ebay doesn’t exactly match the thrill of rummaging through a secondhand shop but it’s still good to dip in from time to time.
The glory days of Ebay are over now, a bit like car boot sales, it’s still possible to find something interesting but it happens less often these days.
Having said that, when you do come up trumps it’s still a brilliant feeling. I got a wonderful haul of original paintings and other artwork for £14. I am still pinching myself… Here’s what I got…
A selection of original watercolours and pastels of small English towns and countryside.
A great watercolour on the back of a Crunchy Nut Cornflake packet. I love this!
A bright wide print of a lake…
And these are my absolute favourites… Two original ink illustrations, the style seems familiar but I just can’t remember where I’ve seen it before. They are so accomplished but have an ease about them, I can only wonder they were drawn by a professional cartoonist. Sadly, there are no signatures so I am at a complete loss. If you think you know who they are by, please leave a comment below!
Aren’t they great?
This large canvas of a village lake was also included. It’s so beautifully painted. I’m going to put it back on a wooden frame. Isn’t this a great haul for £14? Affordable art at its best!
