What did the Mayflower and Plymouth in 1620 really, I mean really look like?

If you think you can contribute to the question, now is the time to get in touch.

 

1620? a new nation, a long story although the painting’s story really began in 1998.

I bought a model of The Mayflower and “The Mayflower And Other Colonial Vessels” by W A Baker [ISBN : 0 85177 286 2], the man who designed the successful 1957 Mayflower replica.

The Mayflower & Plymouth bureaucracy, a blank canvas 01 August 2019 …

 

2015 :

an elite committee of far sighted Plymouthians approached me with a  proposal, in part because I’ve lived in Plymouth for over 25 years.

A series of large paintings to be VIP gifts during Mayflower400 in 2020.

Aided ably by fellow Plymouthian, the late Bob Brennan, I began detailed research and produced a series of basic concept sketches.

2018 : Plymouth city and central government bureaucracy involved, they killed our project.

It seems a waste not to use the insights we illuminated from our valuable research hence the new painting.

 

Any one of the first group of concept sketches, two shown here, could be developed into an impressive painting.
