The Richelieu, Hamilton Harbour

8x10 oil on canvas
It was a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend and we were able to get out for another sail before cold weather sets in. The autumn light is amazing at this time of year. Taking pictures from a boat allows for different perspectives. I liked the angle of this tug as it was illuminated by the late afternoon sun.

I like the tension of the rope and the expanse and volume of the front of the 'Tug'--hmmm, good title? also the movement of the background sky and the hint of red in the trees indicates the season shift...just had a look at your 2 previous posts- handled so beautifully--especially the reflections--do you use a lot of paint in those areas and brush or knife?
