Grasses..Pastel.. Texas Artist..Rae Andrews
I had this odd off cut of paper, and have no idea what it was though. It's a dark maroon color and is sanded. Any ideas?
Anyway, I had mounted it onto some archival foam core a few years ago so why not use it?
The format is quite elongated and poses problems or should I say, challenges to the artist, composition wise.
I chose to do just tall brambles and grasses, really playing with the various textures.
I used an alcohol wash under painting in parts, let it dry and then worked the pastels over the top.
I don't usually do this technique of underneath washes, but this paper took the wet media so why not?
I hope you like it.
