SUNRISE ON THE BEAGLE, watercolor
South America Cruise series # 33 (continued after a few days break)
I am back from another wonderful trip, so I will be continuing now publishing this series of paintings done during February and March this year, along the 5 week cruise we took to South America. The Beagle Channel at the very end of the South American continent, has been named after the ship that carried Charles Darwin in the mid-1800s: "The Beagle". It was impressive. At sunrise on the channel the light changed every few seconds, painting directly was impossible, so I took many photographs during this sunrise cruising and painted afterwards. It was the end of February, so that is the end of summer in the southern hemisphere. It was very cold, we saw some glaciers on the mountains in the continent side, and also on the mountains in the islands side. Cruising along, in the Beagle Channel, a couple of months ago...
