Tug Art

My rendition of one of the best looking tugs on the Mersey, built in the days when tugs looked like tugs and not like waterborne farm tractors. She would make a great model.

I can smell the salt air as I put my self into your picture. As an artist, not even on par
with your abilities to portray , I can only imagine the pleasure you felt as you painted
and created a magic moment of classic tugboat time.

Thank you for sharing Fred,
Michael
Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

Thank you Gentlemen,  I was lucky to work on tugboats when I did, I have lots of good memories (and some scary moments) of those far off days when steam ruled and the ports were full of ships and tugs. That is what I like to paint but I am always being asked to paint other things not remotely related to the sea!

Cheers,  Fred
