Tugboat at dusk

It’s the end of a hot day. The sky is smoggy. The tugboats just finished securing the cruise boats across the city and the lagoon of  Venice.

No shiny sunset for today : The sunlight cannot come through… Its pink light is diluted in the sky, then reflected on the water…Everything becomes purple and darker. It makes you wonder if the night is not yet !

In fact, the same painting without the pink could be called “Tugboat by the moonlight”… couldn’t it ?
