the Watercolors of John White and the lost colony of Roanoke

John White and John Smith - I think I have them combined as one in my mind.



White was the grandfather of Virginia Dare, and governor of Roanoke, Raleigh's colony in America.  John Smith is the  governor of James Town and friend of Pocahontas.



White was also a skilled watercolour painter.
