Drawing/Calligraphy/Cartooning/MACFIE - THE FLYING CLOUD CLIPPER SHIP


Delsea wrote at 2013-07-01 18:37:19
Gordon Macfie was an artist who did all of the drawings in the book Sails Through the Centuries written by Sam Svensson.  We also own one of Macfie's works, The British Blackwell Frigate La Houge.  La Houge was a wooden full-rigged ship built in 1855 by James Laing.  The figurehead was a lion rampant supporting a shield with the St Andrew's Cross but this is not visible in the drawing.  She is rigged with double fore and main top-sails, single topgallant sails and royals.  With that said, the book has many Clipper ships in it as well.  Yours might be one of them.  Good Luck and hope this helps.

I carve wood to create any image. Lately, my commissions consist largely of replicating a person or animal in wood as a walking stick or bottle stop. My creations do seem to match the photo I am given to reproduce very well. I can answer your questions regarding drawing and wood carving. I do not use chain saws in wood sculptures and cannot answer questions petaining to that.


I have been an artist for over 20 years and maintain a modest web-site showing examples of my wood carvings and drawings.
That wevsite, should you care to view, can be seen at:
