Lily Design..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



                            I don't think I have ever done one like this before, and it was great fun. Quite meditative actually.
                                                                  My AIM....

                         I just wanted LINE to be the main focus, and of course, COLOR.

                         I think I may carry this idea on in a larger piece, wish me luck!

                                  This is a small watercolor on Fabriano paper.
                                                           5" x 7" unframed
                                                             $60 plus S/H

Garden Gaiety..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



A loose and spontaneous watercolor, this one was great fun to paint.

I did not pre-draw anything. I just found shapes onto which to build my flowers after a loose throw of paint.

I am always telling my students to leave the whites of the paper showing through, and to be aware of the shapes they make as well, no two white shapes should be the same size and importance.

If the design is a good one, the painting should be successfully turned in most directions and still look okay.

Try it, this way of painting is very freeing..

                                           This image is 16" x 22" unframed.

                                                           $350 plus S/H

Garden Shambles..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

 
 
Sometimes we simply don't have to tell the whole story. This vignette is an example of a 'short story' ..

The garden at Le Vieux Couvent is a rambling and at times, an unkempt garden, perfect to find  the occasional small vignette to paint.

This began as a demonstration, and the photo below shows me in the garden pointing out the area I wanted to concentrate on.


                                                   This is a watercolor on Arches paper.

                                                                  11 ' x 15' unframed

                                                                      $250 plus S/H
