I've been at it again

Three tugs in Belfast, Maine
Photo: by the geezer hisself
  I used this photo as a starting point for my newest painting.  The tugs were more distant when I took to picture but by cropping it I got this result.  I traced the tugs to my watercolor paper and nothing else.  Here is the result - I think the painting is better than the scan, but that's just me.
The scan
A Kolinsky Weasel
  A lot of watercolor brushes are Kolinsky Sable hair.  The little weasel lives in Europe and the ladies in England at Winsor and Newton are kind enough to assemble the brushes.  They cost too much for me.
