Nordenskjold glacier; This is the starting point of a new painting - a large oil on canvas (1.5m x 1.3m) of a glacier-front in Cumberland Bay East, in the general area of the harbour of Grytviken. There will be a couple of king penguins swimming in the foreground. I stained the canvas some days ago to give me a light mid-tone background and, with that now dry, I have begun the painting by marking in the 'horizon', i.e. the bottom of the glacier where it meets the sea.
