Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we are going to work on drawing the Mayflower boat. So the Mayflower was a big old boat. It had a big fin on the bottom and this big kind of hull that came up. And there were these little windows on the hulls which were where people kind of looked out and saw the water. There's a tip that came out like that. And this boat had a lot of, it was a very large boat it had a lot of stuff going on here, different pieces. And then the very big part was it had these masts, masts and flags, and what have you. So it had about it like it looks like two or three of those that came down, up like that. And then the masts when they're opened were these giant sails that would carry the boat where it needed to go. And when they were rolled up they would basically be kind of bunched up on the sides like that. And then at the top of the mast there was this sort of decorative area. Actually we'll make that a little bit taller because there were flags on top of the masts like that. And then a couple of flags blowing in the wind to show where this boat was coming from. Let's see there we go. And then of course you would go back and you could color your boat in. You could color the hull brown, shade it in different areas. Give it some pieces of wood that go across. And you could color your masts in white. Just like that. You can give them a little bit of shading of you want to. And don't forget the most important part, the water. It's kind of a choppy ocean here. So the bottom part of the boat as you can see would be kind of in the water so you wouldn't really see that part. And that is how you draw the Mayflower.
