    Hi all I know this is going to be a stretch but you never know.
    Anyone have any idea on the signature of this painting seems to be an m e and p.
    This sticker on the back seems to be from a frame in england phone number has 4 numbers. Any thoughts appreciated. Chris 15288766096040.jpg 15288766096561.jpg 15288766347852.jpg 15288809798020.jpg

    Hants is short for Hampshire, so its likely the painting is of a tiny island off the south coast, maybe near Chichester or Bouremouth etc.

    It could also be of one of the islets around the Isle of Wight.

    Hi CM. Lovely watercolour where ever it is. To my eye it looks quite well done. Nice quality. I can't help with the signature. I am just amazed at how many lovely old pieces like this are currently available. They almost seem discarded. Does no one value these now? And I'm sorry, I have to be cheeky here, have you tried telephoning the number? :joyful:

    More likely to be a headland seen across a bay. There are no South coast islands that big and lumpy, although it is not positively South coast and indeed the painter may have simply made the whole scene up. From the phone number possibly 1960s, which matches the style,

    There is a whole pile of them just off the south west coast.

    Totally agree this was 8 dollars. Fairly picky about art I buy now and this did look like a quality painting.
