No22 in a new series of digital paintings of ships and boats of yesteryear.
This is a digital painting using Quickstroke AOP in DAP of my original graphite pencil drawing of A Steam Tugboat in the Open Sea.

Historically tugboats were the first seagoing vessels to receive steam propulsion, freedom from the restraint of the wind and capability of going in any direction. As such, they were employed in harbours to assist ships in docking and departure.
