How To Draw the Mayflower

In 1620, the Mayflower landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts. This amazing ship is made of dozens of sails, ropes, masts and windows. I simplified it so that students could focus on making the sails look like they were full of wind. This sample was drawn on Krafty Cardstock and colored with my favorite Reeves Coloured Pencils. Click HERE to view my 12-step tutorial.

I really like this ship! We did our clipper ships a little differently, but I like the shape of your ship better! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas you share on your site! VERY helpful!
