Art Cargo

Along the waterfront of Halifax Harbour there is a walkway that brings you up close to the massive scale of ships and cranes. Yesterday as the beautiful fall air continued in our area there was a few minutes to take a walk and make a sketch.

What would be considered a smaller container ship was tied against the pier and its steel containers were swinging through the air. The loading and unloading of cargo continued as the drawing progressed with trucks lined up to take their turn. Thuds of bumping steel punctuating the background sounds of whirring motors created a soundtrack to draw by.
