After The Rain..Pastel...Texas Artist...Rae Andrews
I have been just edging my way through some old demos half finished, and this one was a test to my 'gentle side' of painting. :))
I usually love bold and dramatic colors as you know,so this high key painting was a discipline for me.
I think I like it, and might do more in this vein.
The scene is here in Austin. I was on a walk with the puppies on the greenbelt in Lakeway, and we had just gotten caught in a small rain shower. The colors on the water were so romantic and soft. I knew I would have to paint it.
