This is an impressionistic image of tug boats At the Ready. I hope to capture the feeling of a small seaside harbor on a beautiful day. Warm, sunny, and ready when called upon, to guide ships into port and out to sea.
The original image is painted on Saunders Waterford watercolor rough, 300 gram paper. This is some of the best paper money can buy. They have been making paper on the same site in Europe since the 1700's.
The paper size is 12.125 inches by 9 inches. There is a .125 inch boarder around the image. This is where the paper was taped or mounted to the board while painting.
