Valley Forge, PA (En Plein Air)
Today I am posting my Plein Air study of one of the shelters on the grounds of Valley Forge in Pennsylvania. A small shack like this replica would have slept up to a dozen men in the winter of 1778.
Valley Forge was one of my favorite day trips when I lived in Philly, it's great to be back with brush in hand. I used to go there some weekends with my camera and photograph the hundreds of deer that roamed the encampment. The place is infested with them and I loved it.
There were two doe's grazing by me while I was painting, I've included a snapshot of them lurking behind my paintbox.
