Tugs at rest in Hamilton Harbour

8x10 oil on canvas
These tugboats are moored behind a break wall in an industrial part of Hamilton Harbour. A barge dominates the foreground. This bay at the western end of Lake Ontario is also called "Burlington Bay".

Beautiful! These tugs lookso fresh, so happy, and eager to do their jobs. Great color.

How well the "three-in-a-row" composition works, Catherine. And tugboats are such fun, the more the better! I looked at this painting tonight and thought that you were so clever to use gentle passages of colour to link the whole composition and give it unity.

Nice job on this Catherine! I just tried 3 fishing boats and had to wipe it all off and I am afraid to try it again. You make it look easy...HUH!!
