A Wandering..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



I just finished this one. It's of the river area near my home. I have done several plein air paintings of it.
This one however, I painted in the studio today, from my photograph.

 Green on green is beautiful in nature, but in a painting, it tends to be a bit much of the same thing for me. 

 I usually play with complimentary colors, such as the orange/red family and even some blue/mauve colors as small accents amongst the green.

I hope you like this one. For me, it was very meditative to paint.

Journal Entry..Greek Islands..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


Today’s journal entry is of the Greek Islands. I took a cruise around the islands with my dearest artist pals a few years ago, great fun!

This image is from the island of Myconos, an island I had been to before, but still remains a favorite of mine.

I used my larger 8” x 10” Stillman Birn journal for this one.

Journal Entry Southwest France..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


This journal entry is of  Saint Cirq Lapopie while I was teaching at Le Vieux Couvent this past May. A fascinating medieval cliff side village 300 feet above the River Lot.

We had a wonderful day trip to this village, shopping and meandering through the winding little streets, just full of charming stores and restaurants.

I did not manage to paint there, but did take lots of photos which is where this study came from.

I will be teaching again at Le Vieux Couvent in July 2019.

It’s a wonderful place to stay and expose yourself to the peace and charm of the Southwest France region.

Journal Entry from French Alps and Switzerland ..Watercolor..Texas Artist...Rae Andrewsw



Annecy is in the French Alps. This town was a part of the workshop I taught in the Alps recently.

We stayed here as well as Geneva (Switzerland) and Combloux in wonderful hotels. And the scenery was to die for!!

So back to Annecy, known as the 'Little Venice of the French Alps' and you can see why, I think. Lots of canals and reflections, just perfect for the artist in me!

We did a LOT of shopping here as well, so many interesting stores and markets to stroll.

I will have very fond memories of this workshop and my students, they all did an amazing job , but then it was very inspiring for any artist!

Journal Entry Texas scene..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



Just finished this journal entry.. a few years ago I was at the banks of the Pedernales River not far from where I live here in Texas. It’s a great spot to paint.

Lately we have had an enormous amount of rain and flooding, so this area is a good place to stay away from till the water subsides. 

I used an old photo for this journal entry.
 It’s in my Stillman and birn 8” x 10” Beta series journal.

Journal Entry ...Watercolor...Texas Artist..Rae Andrews




This journal entry is from one of my wanders off the beaten track during my workshop at Le Vieux Couvent in France one year ago.

While students were painting the church nearby and vineyards, I did a little excursion through the brambles with my camera and found this amazingly beautiful scene to paint.

The reflections were simply beautiful. They were just reaching out from the shore and in the far distance there was a small beach of some sort..just perfection.

This is in my larger format 8” x 10” Stillman and Birn journal.
