Agawa Canyon

Agawa Canyon
to collector in Bloomfield Hills, MI
oil on linen/panel, 2009, 5x7"
Today's daily painting is of the Agawa Canyon, a Great Lakes self-unloading bulk carrier upbound on the Detroit River. We were on Belle Isle while this wonderful freighter passed by. It is always a treat to see these monsters up close.

Great work Stephen. You have simplified the detail yet conveyed all the detail. Not easy! Colours are wonderful also.

Stunning scene, what a wonderful painting Stephen!

Thanks Sheila and Pierre, this one took a little more brain power than some to figure the plan of attack.
