Tributes continue to flood in for Beryl Cook. Most of the broadsheets have published obituaries reflecting the great affection for this artist . Cook often started paintings from sketches she made in the Dolphin , her local pub in Plymouth .One of these is the Strippergram. Local Billy explains: â€œOne day a strippergram came in for one of the customers. I don’t remember which one.
â€œShe used to carry these cards around with her and make sketches. That’s what she was doing when Billy saw her with her head down.â€
â€œShe came back a few weeks later and showed me her drawing. That one,â€ adds Billy, as he points to a Beryl Cook print on the wall above the fruit machine.
The painting shows a chubby lady, down to her underwear, stripping for a bemused drinker. In the background, one customer plays the fruit machine, oblivious to the excitement.
â€œThat’s me,â€ says Rob.
â€œShe used to come in every Friday,â€ says Rob. Billy, who has held the Dolphin licence for the past 20 years
â€œShe had one helluva laugh. Really deep.”
Among her many paintings Angels is one of her most popular
