Hinman Lake, July Morning
Hinman Lake, July Morning-
Painting by Kevin Macneil Brown, gouache on paper, 2018.
This summer I've been focusing on painting in gouache. As my favored medium is watercolor, it has been challenging and satisfying to explore different ways of thinking about color, light, and texture; layering opaque, rather than transparent, colors..
Working from sketchbooks and memory, I decided to make a gouache painting of a place that continues to resonate inside me: Hinman Lake in the Routt National Forest in Clark, Colorado.
