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.

This image measures 16" x 20" unframed

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.
