Hi, my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your George Gault paintings.Could you very kindly attach photos and give me the dimensions of each.Once you have the photos in your computer just click on the paperclip icon (located above the text box where you are typing to me) to attach them.Many thanks and wait to hear,Robert PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, R.

I'm unable to upload photos but can say they are 50cm x40cm. Typical Connemara scenery and seem to be watercolours
Thanks for the dimensions, that helps, I'm sorry you are having difficulty uploading photos.You can email them if you wish. Send to***@******.***(this is the only address that gets to me)Mark the email for my attention, Robert S. in the Antiques category otherwise they won't know who to send it to. I work "on" rather than "for" JustAnswer as an independent agent so all emails have to go through a third party to protect everyone's privacy. It may take up to 24 hours, but I'll let you know as soon as I see it this end. Alternatively, if you can collar a passing teenager with an iPhone they would have them to me here instantly.Hope this helps!Best wishes,Robert

Bad attempt
Thanks so much for the photo, that's a great help, I can see what you have. This looks like a print rather than an original. You can tell which if you look at it closely with a magnifying glass in very strong light. If you see little dots of individual color like newspaper print pictures, then it's a print.Let me know what you see and we'll go from there.Also, could you very kindly attach a photo of the second one. Only one image came through.Many thanks,Robert
