Subdued Light..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

High Key paintings do not come as easy to me as an image in the low key (darker values) range.

I thought I would try one, just to get into some 'dangerous waters' so to speak.

I think we all need to do this occasionally, and not stay in our SAFE zone all the time. Sound familiar?

I made this image up, and wanted the drama of the soft sky to be the main feature.

I used Canson Mi Teintes Touch paper, which is not my favorite, but hey, what the heck!

I felt a need for the 'pop' of red in the front grasses just to get that area to read closer to the viewer. This I did with the 'dusting' technique.
Great fun!
