Peter Frey farm by Dianne Lorden

Earlier this week I visited the Peter Fray farm, on the GNMP, to work en plein air. There are a lot of great views of the farm and surroundings. I ended up leaving the property and working from across the Taneytown Rd. to create this pastel. The reds are not accurate -- just couldn't seem to recreate the barny colors of those buildings. And, the barn itself is not correct. Don't know how that happened, but I somehow made a bad sketch. Must have been the heat! It was one of those beastly hot, humid days before the weather improved. My fine art website is South Mountain Sketchbook.

I commented on this work on the DPP blog-worth repeating, though-love the sketch's spontaneous look.
