My vector drawing (not auto trace or copy) of my own pencil sketch which is based on Cutty Sark “Clipper Ship at Top Speed” sky from Barda village and sea borrowed from a public domain image.
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.
