Painting 'en plein air' in Antarctica (1st person POV)

This video taken by John was created in 2013 during his artist residency in Antarctica. John had just left the Australian base at Mawson and arrived at Béchervaise Island, where scientists study Adélie penguins. Struck by the huts in which the scientists stay, he chose to paint one of them.

What Painting on an Icebreaker in Antarctica Looks Like

In 2013, Artist John Kelly was invited to the Australian Antarctic bases for a special artist residency. He spent 21 days aboard the Aurora Australis, an icebreaker ship, journeying to the frozen continent. In this video, you see John painting “en plain air” (or in this place “en frigid air”) as he depicts an iceberg alongside the ship.
