Answer
Not sure what's going on with these links?  I tried to open them three different ways, no go.

OK NOW THEY OPENED...
WHAT DOES THE SIGNATURE AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT SAY?

I enlarged the signature, but it's still a bit blurry.  Can't tell if thats a C or a G large letter. they remind me of some old Botanicals I have from the 1700's.
This one will take some research and an art expert from that region or who knows artists in that region.
I will look at the ones I have, I doubt they are the same artist.

If no one is able to identify these, there are books like the Netherlands Watercolor book by Adrie Hello (you'll need a translator) but to know which books to research, again will take quite a bit of time.

Expertise

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
