Located in the Brandywine Valley, the historic Kuerner Farm is the setting for many of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings and sketches. Karl Kuerner III, whose family members are featured in Wyeth’s paintings, is an accomplished painter himself. Through the Brandywine Conservancy and Brandywine River Museum, he offers plein air classes at the farm. I am thrilled to be taking part in this opportunity to explore this historic setting.
No sooner had I blocked in this first study and it began to rain. Though discombobulating, rain does lend authenticity to plein air painting!
