Van Wechel notes,“Whenever I’m in the field, some of the moments I find most inspiring are when I just quietly observe my subject. No photographing, or sketching — just taking in all of the sights, sounds, and smells. These mental notes are as important to informing my work as my sketches and reference photography. Quietly immersing myself in the serenity of the environment often leads to unforgettable experiences with nature that I can then bring into the studio and reimagine through my work.”
