20: Lessons in Life and Art with Naturalist and Artist Robert Bateman

Mike looks back on the five year old version of himself, explores some human anatomy as well as more nature with graphite. Naturalist and artist Robert Bateman then joins Mike to talk about his art career that has spanned nearly eight decades. They talk about his move from abstract to realism, discuss some of his pieces, explore some art tips and of course they chat about nature.
