Lakeside Respite..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews








LAKESIDE RESPITE is of the area in France we all went for a sketching day and a lovely picnic. The reflections were so serene and the day was perfect. I chose to do this small bridge as it's typical of this region. Very close to St Germaine.

This pastel is 9" x 11" (unframed) on red sandpaper, and although the original is not for sale, prints of this image may be purchased through Fine Art America:

France Journal Entry ..Le Vieux Couvent..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



I am gradually filling this journal with the blast of my France scenes.

This one is going up the hill to le Vieux Couvent where we all stayed.

Missing that wonderful place so much, going through withdrawal I think.

The green gate on the left, is the entrance to the convent..
