Whirling Dervish.Semi-Abstract......Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

I began this with a pour of watercolor and acrylics on an Ampersand board.
At the time of the pour, I had no idea what I wanted to paint, so I decided to just play with the liquid media.

When it naturally dried, I began to wade through my photos, and decided to use KOI as my muse having watched and photographed tons of these fish on Maui on my last trip there.

I used my pastel pencil to draw the shapes into the painted areas, and then proceeded to overlay my pastels to retrieve the fish.

This is a large painting, 24" x 36" and is unframed. I hope you like it..

$500 Plus S/H ( contiguous USA. only).
