Texas artist Rae Andrews, paintings in all media and genre. She is an Australian ex-pat who moved to Maui in the early 1990's where she owned two art galleries .. she now resides in Texas where she conducts workshops both in the USA, Australia and Europe.
This workshop is designed not only to show the pastel student how they can use this medium in differing ways, but also will concentrate on design and composition. Rae will demonstrate techniques and varied approaches for manipulating pastels. Individual expression is key to Rae and she will strive to bring out each student’s personal sense of design and color.
Rae uses velour paper generally for portraits and also good sanded paper. She will demonstrate both at this workshop. Students can choose which substrate they prefer as each will give a different result.
There will be ongoing critiques throughout this workshop, and students can expect short technical demos on the use of pastels throughout the afternoon.
