Some paintings in Arkle's 'naive' style

Above are three recently posted examples of William Arkle's paintings from the Facebook pages curated by his son Nick. These are all in what I would broadly call his 'naive' style - characterised by freshness and simplicity. I particularly like the lower landscape with figures; which has a real 'holiday' atmosphere about it - perhaps a holiday as imagined or remembered by a child.
