Ronda, Spain - Monastery
watercolor - 1930
Hacinas, northern Spain
Piccolo Marina, Capri
What a wonderful time we had up on the hill at Hotel Splendido sipping Prosecco with a plate of prosciutto and fresh figs overlooking the blue, blue Mediterranean. Kirkland really captured the colors of the buildings in his watercolor.
Such dimension and rich colors.
1935 - Oil on linen
Ruins of the Rioja region, northern Spain
When I saw Kirkland's Ruins of Central City, immediately I thought of the eerie sight that we had seen in Spain. Both scenes in the photo and the water color are very haunting and both have somewhat muted buildings with patches of green grass. Wild!
