Warships and containers, Itajai

Warships, Itajai, oil on card, 12.3 x 9.5 cm

I spent yesterday in Itajai, wandering about.

Containers, Itajai, oil on card, 6.7 x 8.8 cm

Itajai a container port to the north of Florianopolis, somewhat nondescript, and like many container ports large areas are hidden by giant walls. It has, however, got a spendid river- giant container vessels float unhurriedly down it, mountain of coloured containers line the shores. I took the one real ferry to the far bank and painted these warship: I saw three docked here.

It drizzled and rained much of the day. Actually, it has been raining incredibly hard down here, the water coming down so fast you'd get soaked in seconds. I predict flooding down here in Santa Catarina.
