Painting in a Garden

Aww, that is James Gurney, in a photo lifted from his blog--if you go see it you can look at his little watercolor painting of calla lilies.

I love his watercolors, and the Sargent quote he notes about painting with them: "Making the best of an emergency", which I why I like watercolors myself and I was thinking of getting back to doing them--they are completely different from painting digitally. Here's Gurney's blog:
