Carroll Valley Spring by Larry Lerew

"Carroll Valley Spring"
by Larry Lerew
Acrylic on Archival Canvas Panel 11 x 14"
First plein air painting of 2013. Drove down Rt. 116 through Fairfield, Pa and spent the morning of Thursday, April 18th painting with my friend Dorothea Barrick at the Carroll Valley Township Park. This bright and colorful painting is how I interpreted a nearby stone farm house on an overcast, drizzly day from under a dry pavilion. The trick is to not really paint what you see but what you feel. Painting is poetic and to many plein air painters are way to literal.

So Rusty but Still Fun! by Larry Lerew


Fort Hunter Barn and Bridge

Old Fort Hunter Filling Station

Old Fort Hunter Garage

View of Rockville I think.

Fort Hunter Mansion on the Hill above the creek.
This rocky bank would be interesting to paint.
Had a great time getting out with the SVPAP group today at Fort Hunter, just above Harrisburg, PA.
Spent my time making these 5 quick sketches to shake some of the cobwebs off. Didn't have the courage to paint today, it's been a long winter.
