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)

Back in Ushuaia, Headed North..

The cruise is over and we´re back on land. Feels
super and normal! No more rollin´ and stumbling
for me!

It was an amazing trip. I will add photos once I
get back to the states and some more detailed commentary.

I´ll be in Santiago tonight and tomorrow - should be able
to hook back up with Tomas Rivas from ND again. Then it´s
a night flight to NYC and back to South Bend.

It´s exciting to go on a trip and then come back for more
holidays, rolling straight into Xmas and New Years! Yay!
