Description of Overseas New York

The Overseas New York is a liquid petroleum carrier – she is huge. I saw her in Port Tampa tied up on a sunny day. This is only the bow of the ship. It always amazes me how a small webbing of lines hold such a monstrous bulk. This ship travels all over the world. While the ship is very tightly rendered, the background is quite abstracted and the foreground loose and impressionistic.
