A classic painting, a timeless subject, any reputable gallery should be delighted to offer you this painting for this price… and are welcome to help you buy.

Affectionately dedicated to my late friend who assisted under my direction most ably with the research, a much missed friend, a great enthusiast for Plymouth, Bob Brennan.

The finished painting shows the famous Mayflower towing out of Plymouth’s inner harbour, ‘sutton Pool’.

Our Mayflower ship is based on the 1957 design by William Baker and the appearance of Plymouth in 1620 is based upon maps from the period, archive research including, know archaeological evidence and location visits.

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.

We know the #Mayflower sailed from #Plymouth to immortality, to found the colony that has become the super power, the United States of America.

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

The Mayflower, Plymouth,
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.
