Another G.H. Elliott watercolour emerges

Since I published the restoration of the G.H. Elliott water colour "Mountain Mists" I have been approached by the owner of a beautiful river scene painted by Elliott in 1885.
Like the one I restored the frame is dilapidated but in the case of this painting, (also mounted on board with gum arabic) it is in remarkably good condition.
For the sake of documentation I have decided to publish an image of this painting on my blog.
I wonder how many more there are out there?

Two new boat portraits.
