Antarctic Watercolor Series, Limited Edition

These are the four successful watercolors
I completed on my recent trip to Antarctica.

The four watercolors were completed on site,
from our ship's observation deck.

Usually I had about 20 - 30 minutes to sketch
out the composition and then work in the main
colors and details before the ship would move
on. I would take some pics and then add in
smaller details later (like tiny cracks, etc).

(click to enlarge, each watercolor is 7 inches by 10 inches)
