Hello,

There is one image attached here that I can see on my end of a side angle view of your artwork. Please include a front view of the work as well as clear, in-focus close-up of the surface so I can see the texture as well as the signature and a view of the backside (do not remove from frame).

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

The problem that this is not a signature. I'm fairly sure that "Terraza 5V" is the title.

Can you see if there is any other sort of signature hidden anywhere else on the painting? If not it's probably, alas, on the back.

I thought it looked like a 5 but thinking it's a "s" not really sure that's a v or just a design the artist makes

Took back off there are imprints on each corner of back
Expert:  Appraiser JM replied 1 year ago.

That would be the manufacturer of the paper, most likely.

It's a lovely little watercolor but I don't think there is any way to identify the artist.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
