Tug and Barge on the Hudson

My parents have been visiting New York from California for the holidays. High on my mother’s list of sights is the Statue of Liberty. Instead of paying the money to visit the island we decided to take the Staten Island Ferry  past Liberty Island. I spotted many boats and barges working along the river. This one was carrying garbage. I’ve been wanting to make a watercolor of one of these boats on the waterfront. When I do I’ll post it. I haven’t quite caught a good enough photo along the waterfront here in New York worthy of a watercolor. The photos I took this day were under a lot of cloud cover so I made this vector image. I did find this lovely blog called Bowsprite on New York nautical culture. It’s absolutely the best blog! The artwork is superb!
