Tugs and Industry, Hamilton, Ontario

15x18 oil on board
These tug boats were rafted together behind a break wall in an industrial area of Hamilton. With the barge sitting in front of the break wall, it became difficult to identify what these objects are, and so the picture became somewhat abstract.
I was able to photograph these tugs as the sun was setting, having a good vantage point as we sailed by on our small sailboat.
With the steel mills and industry in this area, the sky always has a bit of a "dirty" haze, even on clear days.

You have a wonderful light resting on your boats and barges, Catherine...It is wonderful to see that you capture the sunlight as well as the rainy late-afternoon city scenes! I also love the lively mosaic-like effects of the scene....there were many windows to paint!
