Watercolor Paintings of Pristine Wilderness


KC Benson is an artist whose work is exquisitely portrayed in his watercolor paintings of wilderness and nature. KC Benson Watercolors can be seen at his studio and on-line Gallery.

KC was born in Wyoming, has lived most of his life in Colorado. He lived in Taos, New Mexico many years and now resides in Estes Park, Colorado. His unique style of representational landscapes reflects a deep appreciation of wilderness inspired by the sacred beauty of the Southwest and Rocky Mountain region.

KC paints alla prima - without drawing - and entirely with transparent watercolor. His paintings express and suggest the serenity and uniqueness of the moment in nature.

“Painters are all storytellers, in one way or another.
We begin with a blank piece of white paper, which represents
the unlimited potential in all of us for beauty, creativity and imagination.
We paint with our soul; we all came from dancers, holy ones, storytellers
and the picture makers who painted on cave walls.” KCB
