Graphite Pencil Sketch of a Clipper Ship at Top Speed by 


My graphite pencil sketch of a Clipper Ship at top speed – 10683 views on 02/01/2014
No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.
Based on the Cutty Sark, the last of the great tea clippers.

Cutty Sark has travelled across the world, sailing under both the Red Ensign and the Portuguese flag, visiting every major port in the world through the course of her working life. In admiration of her beauty and in recognition of her fame, she was preserved for the nation by Captain Wilfred Dowman in 1922.

Since then, the old clipper has been berthed in Falmouth and Greenhithe, finally arriving at her current resting place in Greenwich in 1954.

    Excellent drawing but I woudn’t put cannons on a tea clipper.
    Trading ships did have gun ports painted on the side to deter pirates though!!

    Hi Dennis
    I was painting ships before I ventured onto metal and aeroplanes.
    I enjoy the research before starting a painting. Of course my Titanic entering NY Harbor was a metal ship!!LOL
    Cheers Neil

  • Thank you Neil :)
    I think your Titanic is a masterpiece
