Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

tags: , , , , , , ,

This is a fascinating stop-motion video of artist Carel Brest van Kempen’s painting of an Eastern Painted Turtle, Chrysemu picta, a common and widespread American reptile. In my opinion, Carel Brest van Kempen is the finest wildlife artist alive today.

The original painting has been sold. Carel Brest van Kempen published a stunning book, Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding [my review] and writes the art blog that goes by the same name, that might be of interest to you.
