From a Journey, Part Two: Colorado Watercolors
BIG AGNES MOUNTAIN AND MOUNT ZIRKEL FROM CLARK, COLORADO.
Paintings by Kevin Macneil Brown, watercolor and graphite on paper, 2014.
Moving through this winter, I have been working from my Colorado sketchbooks to make some finished watercolor paintings. I remain deeply haunted and awed by the shapes, colors, and textures of the mountains in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area, along the west side of the Continental Divide, up near the Wyoming border.
Here are two paintings made at home in Vermont, working from pencil sketches I did while on a snowy trail run near Vista Verde Ranch in December.-KMB
