Carel Brest van Kempen

I felt certain that I'd highlighted Carel Pieter Brest van Kempen's paintings in earlier HH posts, but, after some archival digging, I've discovered that I did not. Below, I've "embedded" two of Carel's terrific time-lapse documents of his process.

Carel also has an excellent blog devoted to his artwork and to musings on natural history, politics, and miscellany.
