Does this location of a painting look familiar to anyone? - Solved!
« on: Sunday 05 June 05 22:40 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

Here are a couple more watercolours that I have and was hoping to see if anyone knew what area these may be from.

Thanks so much for everyone's help.

I wonder if it isn't Liverpool Castle.....

I've been looking for a picture of it - I know I've seen one somewhere -  this is the only one I can find right now and it's not very good

I'll keep looking for a better one...

Thanks for looking Annie

Is there water around Liverpool Castle?  Or a bridge?

Hi,

I found a couple of pictures of old Liverpool Castle by Googling and it looks as though it wasn't right on the water like the building in the watercolour.  My first thought on seeing the painting was old London Bridge but the pictures I've found don't look like what we're looking for either.

The smaller picture does not look to me as if it is in the UK.  I think it is in a warmer climate somewhere.   

Would it be possible for you to enlarge the picture to give a better view of the type of boat?

I'll try and make it bigger (not that computer savy) and re-post it.  I'm attaching another one that seems to be in the same sort of colours, if that helps or hinders?

The first photo reminds me (a little) of Gailey round house:


You will have to try to imagine it without the modern brick road bridge that hides the arched stone bridge behind it.
