Last Arrival …

There is as of today, a splendid summary, a new page, about this subject, ‘Last Arrival, https://www.frickers.co.uk/art/marine-art/merchant-sail/last-arrival/cutty-sark-last-arrival-further-reading/


Cutty Sark, old age
Last Arrival, the former Cutty Sark  off Pendennis Head

Painting of ‘Ferreira’ and tug ‘Triton’ by Gordon Frickers measures 61 x 91 cm (24″ x 36″), oils, original sold



This surfaced because of the post below by my good friend Marcus Aloof put on my Facebook page, of a fellow artist demonstrating his technique for painting a ship at sunset.

It  is ‘interesting’, amusing, I wrote, “that’s not quite how I paint Marcus Aloof ??? !

Could be time overdue,?? I made a video following one of my paintings, anyone like to help with that?

I’d like to share a fuller reply with you.

This may well interest Cristina Freitas and her friends.
‘Last Arrival’  is an example I painted many years ago.

Ferreira‘ had completed her last commercial voyage and been sold as no longer economic, to Captain and Mrs Dowman.

Captain Dowman, as a youth, had once seen her in her full glory, as she raced up the English Channel bound for London with China tea.
Here, an ‘old lady’ but still displaying to a knowing eye, her former lines and grace, we see her being towed into Falmouth by the tug ‘Triton’ to be restored in Falmouth Docks.

Today this ship is still with us, at Greenwich, London.
We know her as the world famous tea clipper Cutty Sark‘.
