Field Of Dreams...Abstract.. Watercolor and Liquid Acrylics..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


FIELD OF DREAMS  is possibly one of my favorite design formats.I know I seem to gravitate to this high horizon point a lot.. To me this gives so much drama to a painting. I tried to keep the painting to the lighter hues with this one.

For those of you who know me, I tend to get very dramatic with value, so keeping to higher key colors is quite a discipline  for this artist.

To keep to a simplicity within the design is also also quite a discipline. Sometimes, the less said in paint works!

                                                       This image is 8" x 10" (unframed )
                                                         $150 inc. S/H within mainland USA.

Heat Of The Day.. Semi Abstract..Pastel and Acrylic... Texas Artist ...Rae Andrews



I stretched the mood a little more with this one, making my colors a little more intense.And the board was a deep rust color, so the colors I painted over this had to be a but more 'gutsy' for effect.
This is a pastel on a sanded board. I used my acrylics first, to get a REALLY bright start, then used my pastels over the top.



                                                     $100 Inc. S/H within the United States

                                                      This is a 5,5" x 7.5" image (unframed)

Village Glow...Semi -Abstract....Pastel over Acrylic and Watercolor...Texas Artist ...Rae Andrews










Okay, I am still doing the pastel over acrylics and using watercolor to pull areas together with this image. I used WILD colors with the acrylics to begin this scene. I think most of you know how much I just LOVE color!

I love the interaction of the mixed media, and it allows me my vibrant WILD use of color.
I think I prefer the ABSTRACT  genre, but thought I would throw this one in for a bit of a break. Hope you all like it.

Back to the studio!

                                  This image is 5" x 7" on sanded Richeson board.

                                                             $100 Plus S/H

Coastal Interlace...........Abstract..........Pastel and Liquid Acrylics..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



COASTAL INTERLACE  is a slightly larger abstract image than the previous ones I have posted. 

In going to a bigger format, I had to really concentrate on CONNECTION and make the top half of the painting still be a part of the lower areas.

The board on which this is painted is a RICHESON sanded board. I had a failed landscape on this and did not want to toss the good board. Another reason for using these VERY FORGIVING surfaces. i am fast falling in love with them.

I simply washed it down and scrubbed away with an old brush moving the old pastels around. It did not remove all the landscape, however when it dried, I partially pre - wet again in places, and droozled (love that word) my LIQUID ACRYLICS  over areas..I waited till it dried, some patterns were there for me to enhance, some others I needed to totally make up.

I had to gradually cover my surface with pastels. The underneath acrylics just glowed with the pastel overlay.
As with all these abstracts, it could be turned in all directions, some better than others.
I had to think long and hard in finding the best way to look at the image. 

I also spent a lot longer (than my previous smaller abstracts)  painting this one today; perhaps the size,  however I truly had to think on all the design elements with this one. I am happy with it, I hope you also like it..
Time for wine!

                                              Image size of this one is 11" x 14" (unframed)

                                                                        $300 inc. S/H

Blue Concerto..Abstract.. Pastel Over Liquid Acrylic...Texas Artist ...Rae Andrews



Having recently played with the Richeson sanded boards, liquid acrylics and pastel overlays,  I thought I would continue with this image in the same vein..

As mentioned before with my previous post, these boards will allow a lot of mixed media under painting, and the way the colors of the pastel overlays GLOW is magical!

I so wish more pastel societies would allow ABSTRACT imagery in their competitions, in actual fact, these are way more difficult (in this artist's humble opinion), than a traditional landscape image.

Image size (unframed) 
6" x 9"
This image comes presented matted and ready for framing.

Ascension..Abstract...Pastel over Liquid Acrylics...Texas Artist...Rae Andrews




ASCENSION was a challenge, for me, however, a MOST rewarding one. 

I am not one to overlay my pastels with other mediums. I usually just use pastel.

However, having won a whole bunch of art supplies recently (thank you Jack Richeson's Art Supplies) I had a lot of GATORBOARD. 

These boards are a great surface for mixed media such as watercolor, acrylics and pastels.. All are happy to PLAY together on this surface.


                               So here is my PASTEL ABSTRACT effort on GATOR BOARD .

                                                           Image size is 6" x 9"
                                                                  $200 inc.S/H
