Halifax Dry Docks

Once again I'm out in the car studio. It is early morning and the city is just coming to life. A thick fog lifts as the pelting rain slows and a view opens up. Tangled steel, fence, beams and posts surround the dry dock. A huge ship reveals itself. It is out of its environment, supported high and dry within the floating dock under going  refit. Cranes and cables, tug boats and the old bridge frame the harbour and fill the view plane. It is amazing to see how much a view can change on any given day. The painting Once Upon a Harbour shows this change. Both colour and mood vary widely and make the site interesting to me.
