“Dawn on the Farm” 11” x 14” Original Pastel Painting by Colorado Artist Margretta S. Perry






“Dawn on the Farm”  
 11” x 14” 
 Original Pastel Painting
 by Colorado Artist Margretta S. Perry

SOLD



I used Wallis sanded paper as the ground and a mix of soft pastels.
This is taken from a scene near Louisville, CO. I painted this a few months ago and wasn’t happy with the lighter values in the painting. I have gone back in and lightened up the painting and it works much better now. I hope you like it!

My friend and fellow pastelist, Laurie Crawford, went to the Everett, WA arboretum in 2010 to take photos from which to paint before I moved away. I'm so glad we did...this is a sweet painting from that day. It brings back fond memories.

Our yearly trip to the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula is one of our great joys. We take loads of photos to bring home to enjoy. This scene was taken at dawn looking out at the mountains from our balcony. I couldn't get enough of this beautiful desert with the early morning atmosphere.

This painting is framed but not matted. Contact me at smyliemp@gmail.com for pricing information.
