Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands 2013 painting highlights.

I am just unpacking paintings and backing up terabytes of reference material  from  the recent expeditions to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.  The two videos in this  post share some of the painting highlights and wildlife encounters which Daisy  and I filmed. We were fortunate to go back in February 2013 at the end of the Antarctic summer and visited again this November through December in the austral spring to continue our long-term project  studying this wilderness area.

The trips were not only successful in the wonders we saw but also for the charity auctions that raised much-needed funds to support  important conservation projects such as the South Georgia Heritage Trust and Oceanites. Thank you again to the generous fellow travellers that put forth a bid on my illustrated marine charts and Daisy’s books. Also a big thank you again the the One Ocean Team for making it happen!

A selection of watercolours painted on location from these trips can be found on the recent works page as well as many other paintings in the galleries.

    Amazing work – the movement, and grittiness in the piece “enter the drake” in particular. Thanks for sharing!
