    It’s so nice to see Bechtels work here. He is one of my earliest inspirations, some of the first paintings I got lost in. I remember looking at his watercolors especially and being so blown away that he could get the paint to look like a photo. There is a short documentary floating around somewhere showing him talking about his work and practice, look for it!. Really one of the best, thanks for posting!
