The boat in this painting is not unfinished. Ted Harrison produced a number of works in which the subject was intentionally left colourless to dramatize the two major components of his style - the drama of the land, its people and the light. The reason he never painted faces on his subjects, and in this case, the colour on the boat, was to encourage the viewer to use their own imagination.
