Aussie Anzac.. Pastel.. Texas Artist.. Rae Andrews




I wish I had gotten this old guy's name when I took his photo many years ago.( 30 years at least)

I was teaching in the country area of Bathurst in NSW Australia.

I had a flex day during the week I was there, so I drove to the wonderful and well painted old gold mining town, of Sofala.
Characters abound here, and they are very friendly folk. 

This gentleman was sitting sunning himself and rolling a cigarette, when I asked him if he would mind if I took his photo, he replied.

"She'll be right mate! I get asked that all the time" (FYI ...In Australian, this means..okay!)

So I did, and I am only just getting around to doing a serious painting of him now.Well what can I say, I've been busy!

This is a pastel on velour paper.
14" x 19.5" unframed.

Coupled..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



And now for something completely different!

I started this one a few weeks ago, and I am now finally wanting to get back into it.

It's a pastel on a sanded Richeson board.

Some of you might recall I had a mishap a few weeks ago when my studio leaked and rain splashed my pastel BACKWATER STICKS AND STONES.

The surprise of the lovely texture the rain left on my pastel surface made me want to repeat the whole process, this time deliberately.

I had this close focus photo of marine elements I took in Maui, and thought it was just the ticket to experiment with spontaneous texture.

I wanted the painting to be 'mottled' and 'worn looking, such as one sees when walking around a marina and looking at the ropes etc.

I hope you can see this effect okay, I am sort of liking it.

This image is 9" x 24" unframed
