This painting was done after a study from my last painting. It’s a color combination that just glows and Werner Osterrath wrote in the last comment:

This mood is caused by the industrial light of the ships and piers in combination with the light of dawn. I worked in the harbor in the end of the 1970s and saw this kind of light quite often, but never paid much attention to it: which I now deeply regret.

    Greetings from Texas – and about 5 miles from the Port of Houston. Wanted to send my complements on your artwork – it is fantastic. I paint watercolors, many featuring ships in port.

      Thank you Civi. Ports are just great to capture in paintings.
