Delicate Balance...Abstract Design...Pastel...Texas Artist...Rae Andrews




This one is a pastel over an acrylic underlay, although most of that is hidden with pastels now.

That's the beauty of starting a painting like this, the acrylic gives you an option to go with the patterns the paint has made or not. Pastel is an opaque medium so it is not that hard to diminish the acrylic if you desire.

I mostly use my pastel pencils though, on this Richeson sanded surface. Oh, and yes, I am smudging quite a bit after the pastel is applied, something I rarely do with my pastels. This surface is pretty rough and for these designs I prefer a smoother result.

I hope you like this one.

It is an 8" x 10" unframed piece on foam sanded board.

$150 plus S/H 

Prints of this image are also available through Fine Art America:

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).

Colorado Winter Snow Landscape Pastel Painting "Alone But Not Lonely" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

This Colorado landscape is one of my favorite paintings. A pastel, it depicts a house that is part of an old, abandoned mining camp on Red Mountain Pass above Ouray, Colorado. Buried deep, deep in snow it looked to me as if it was sleeping.
