The South Georgia, Falkland Islands trip was a great  success in that we were able to land at many new locations early in the subantarctic season and witness one of natures greatest displays of wildlife set amongst a dramatic  mountain scape.

Painting has been prolific as well as filming and photography. I look forward to post a more detailed account of trip plus insightful video clips of the natural wonders and the creative process when we return home in late December. Posted here is some examples from the trip #1 2015 so far. Many thanks to one ocean expeditions and the staff that helped get us to land safely!

 Painting above the St. Andrews Bay  King Penguin Colony, on South Georgia Island. This is the largest colony on the island, the penguins seems to fill the valley with texture and patterns, truly one of natures great wonders.

“King Hakkon Bay, West South Georgia Island”, 12 x 22inches watercolor, Oct 20, 2015. I was thrilled to have a chance to paint the approach to the seldom visited exposed and wild west side of South Georgia. We viewed the place where Shackleton landed the James Caird after the epic voyage from Elephant island.  It was here that Shackleton  along with Tom Crean and Frank Worlsey began a daunting crossing of South Georgia’s  Glaciers in order  to find a rescue boat to save stranded crew on elephant Island. On this One Ocean Expeditions trip we had aboard a group of young exporters that  we drop off to  reenact  the crossing in honour of the explores of the past. They made it! to follow there blog see
