• A Playful Balance..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

    26 days ago - By Rae Andrews Gallery

    This one is a demo I did in conjunction with my watercolor waterfall study I posted three posts ago, a demo on moving water, action and drama.
    I did this demo the same day, in pastels on Sennelier paper.
    I did not have a reference photo for this demo, and was getting the students ready for hopefully seeing a waterfall the next day, when we painted at an outdoor location.
    I love to paint the action packed waterfalls, and somehow it looks better if the artist memorizes a scene and lets a little imagination play into the painting. After all the water is constantly moving, so studying it and...

    .
    And now for something completely different! Yep, I actually got out my poor old oil paints today and decided to break into them 'gently' as it's been a few years.
    This is an oil panel, no idea what brand, I think it's one I gessoed myself eons ago.
    I did tint the panel first with a magenta acrylic, and that is the color you see peeping through the oil overlays.
    I love to work on a tinted surface, and mostly it's been with my pastel and watercolor/gouache paintings I admit. So why not my oils?
    I think I will try to do more of these smaller oils for a while, they are a challenge for me..

    This image was a demo in pastels I did while on my France workshop in Frayssinet.
    This day we all went to Saint Germaine, and sadly, the heavens opened up and dumped buckets of rain on us. So we sort refuge back at le Vieux Couvent and the lovely dry studio for a couple f hours.
    Such is the weather in France, and not long after the rain, the sun was out again and we all went to a great antique market in Labastide Murat.
    One never knows with France, but one thing seems to be for sure, the weather does not stay bad for long.
    This is a pastel on tan Sennelier sanded paper.
