Ethereal Dance..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews




I think if I were to describe my technique in any medium I use, on the whole, it would be OVERLAPPING and LAYERING .

With pastels this is, at times difficult, as it's an opaque medium; however one just has to use a light touch to get those underneath nuances to show through.



I began this with a totally abstract colorful start. I did not know what I would end up with. I just went with the flow.




The substrate is a red earth colored Sennelier paper.




I began with this..


I switched the image around in several directions, and kept doing that as the image progressed. 

I have a large shell collection and thought I would go with that as a subject.


Over the top of my abstract beginnings, I drew some of my shells to intersect and overlap.
Now the fun begins!


I like to work in a  NEGATIVE PINTING  technique with most all of my work, and the shells developed in much the same way.


Don't let anyone ever tell you that ABSTRACTS are easy, ("my child could do better".. 
Now where have I heard this before?


In fact, I think ABSTRACTS are the hardest . 

The artist must rely on their sense of design and truly immerse themselves from the heart. 


I hope you like how this one turned out.


This image is 9.5" x 25'5" unframed

$300 plus S/H


Prints  are also available through my Fine Art America site:

Killarney
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the next morning of our Ireland Art Trek, we left for Killarney, making a pit stop in the adorable thatch-roofed town of Adare. After exploring and grabbing lunch, we drove onto our lodging for the next few nights, a 16th century castle, fit for a king! Dinner was also delicious that evening in the castle's dining room.

Day 4:  Ireland ART TREK
Cliffs of Moher
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the fourth morning of our Ireland Art Trek, we explored the exotic Cliffs of Moher. Unfortunately, we received some of that Irish sunshine and only got in a quick glimpse before the sideways rain and wind got the best of us. Since the afternoon was washed out, too, we decided to paint our impressions back at the hotel. Several of the tourists went into town to shop and sightsee, and the photographers gathered around the fireplace to receive a lesson on Photoshop and Lightroom. It turned out to be a great day! That night we dined again on a delicious seafood dinner at a cozy garden restaurant nearby.
