David painting on location

South Georgia

Through painting, video and photography, Canadian artist David McEown continues his long term project to document Antarctica and the Sub Antarctic islands sharing through presentations and art shows the beauty but yet changes that are occurring in one of this earth’s last remaining wilderness.  For more than now 11 years he has painted on location in watercolour(watercolor) in extreme conditions in Antarctica, often letting the watercolours freeze for chance effect. This Gallery displays watercolour (watercolor) paintings from South Georgia including locations a Sailsbury Plain, St. Andrews bay, Gold Harbour, Fortuna bay, and the historic whaling town of Grytviken where explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton is buried. Also painted on location on west point island and saunders island.

South Georgia and the Falkland islands

Wildlife and  the challenges of painting on location painting in watercolour overlooking the big 3 king penguin colonies on South Georgia island: St. Andrews Bay, Salisbury Plain and Gold Harbour.

“Painting in the sub antarctic island of South Georgia is truly incomparable. Canadian artist David McEown paints in watercolour the stark remoteness and vast glaciated peaks rising out of an unforgiving icy ocean that is home to unbelievably numerous and curious species of wildlife. Imagine trying to interpret over 200,000 breading pairs of King Penguins on paper while comprehending the heroic journeys that Shackleton and his men made over a century ago.
