Shadow Dance..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


Another unframed pastel close focus of eucalyptus leaves.


I am loving this process of overlaying an abstraction of colors over the subject. I do this in my app Sketch Club on my IPad.

It gets me out of the ‘color doldrums’ and can totally surprise the eye..

This one is a pastel on Sennelier La Cate sanded paper..
It measures 14.5” x 19.4” unframed.
$350 plus S/H

Carnival..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews




This pastel is on a full sheet of Sennelier La Carte paper..

I like to take my reference to a more abstract interpretation, and this one was so much fun to work with. The palm is in my backyard, and of course, the colors are all made up.

Bangalay Corroboree..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


I had Aboriginals in mind when I painted this one. in their language, BANGALAY means Eucalyptus Tree and CORROBOREE means an event/ dance..hence the title..

**** I have since discovered that the language can differ regionally (throughout Australia )and for the species of tree ..

So BANGALAY might be incorrect in a general sense , but for the sake of this painting I will keep the title as is..

Portofino Drift..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



Finally finished this one.. Pastel on red Sennelier paper.

I am a part of a pastel presentation for Austin Pastel Society on Sunday 28th October  (approx. 3.30-4.30 pm) at Precision Camera in Austin. Please come along if you want to see a fun demonstration by 5 artists.

You would be most welcome. We have a silent auction at the end of each work, and the money raised goes into our scholarship fund.


This presentation is called a PAINT AROUND where all five artists begin on their own artwork for first ten minutes, then it is passed around to the next artist for them to do another ten minutes pastelling  on it.
 The demo lasts one hour with the artwork ending up in front of the original artist, for them to 'tweak' what the other artists have done to their work.

Great fun!

The above pastel painting is me getting in readiness for this presentation.

Un Petite Chien..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


I had this off cut piece of bright deep velvet suede mat board, and decided to try a pastel of this sweet face on it. 
The dog was in a market place in Provence a few years ago when I was there.

The red substrate was strong and a little daunting to control with my pastels, but I think I did okay with this one. On to the next now.

This image is 10" x 10" unframed.
$180 plus S/H

Intent..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews





INTENT is an apt title for this one. The dog was on the Greek island of Myconos, and as much as I tried to get his attention so I could get a good shot, he/she refused to look my way. Still it was a gorgeous dog and I just had to paint it.

I have just purchased the new DARK UART PASTEL PAPER.. I liked it a lot, such a change from the drab sameness UART has always given us, of a sand color ...

Black paper is tricky though, and needs special consideration of the values one uses with pastels.
