A full day on the Ross sea, ice bergs and clouds. My aim was to try and match up the left and right hand sides of the map but at the same time make them look different. On the right I moved from waves to clouds and on the right, ice into clouds. The icebergs are similar shapes but completely different icebergs. I had to give some depth to the iceberg behind the Terra Nova and I quite like the fact that the Terra Nova has been almost swallowed up by the iceberg, however, I am mulling it over whether to make the boat stand out or not. I’ll take a couple of days over it. It seems quite interesting to not see the ship in the first instance and then it catches your eye. People who have seen the map ‘in the flesh’ have said that they just think they have taken everything in on the map and then they notice something else. I rather like that because it must be like that in Antarctica itself. For some reason today I am totally exhausted and so am stopping now as I don’t want to make a mistake and I have managed to crick my neck too! Ouch!
Here is how far I have got today.
