Swiss Deep-Sea Tugboat

This is a great example of how a Subconscious Musing can take on a life of it's own:

Mixed media on paper, 59x86cm.

Instead of pasting on strips of newsprint to begin with, like I had been doing on some of the previuos Musings, and still with a desire to jazz things up a bit, I started this one with an automatic colour painting then let the pastels wander hither and thither.

But with such a strong background it didn't take long before the tugboat emerged which raised the question: does Switzerland have any deep-sea tugboats?

Or are they just wind-up toy boats on Zürichsee?
