James Gurney paints a green frog from life as it rests on a lily pad for over an hour. Gurney uses watercolor and gouache over a casein underpainting.
He considers the question of the frog’s umwelt or its particular viewpoint of its environment and poses the philosophical question of whether we can ever know the subjective experience of any animal, given that each one lives in a very different perceptual environment.
