Friends of artist Beryl Cook are planning a wake at the Dolphin , the pub that inspired many of her works.
Cook, who died aged 81 on Wednesday, was a regular at the Dolphin on Plymouth’s Barbican.
Dolphin landlord Billy Holmes said: “Me and a friend were performing cartwheels in the pub. I told Beryl about it one night and the next thing I knew, she’d painted it.”
The pub’s characters were the subject of many of her paintings, several of which line its walls.
Cook’s agent Robbie Hodges said: “I still think of her more as a friend than someone who was my business. She was very shy and unassuming, which is what people in here respected about her.Big Olives, Little Olives
