Demonstration by Rae Andrews
Rae loves to experiment with her work. She has always loved a challenge, never wanting to get 'stuck in a rut' so to speak. Known for her sense of color and design she considers herself an intuitive artist. Never one to stick to the rules.
Rae paints every genre, from traditional landscape to figurative, to abstract. She wants to try it all.
Many artists think semi-abstract and abstract art is easy. Not true! In fact, Rae feels this area of art is arguably one of the hardest.
Design, shape, movement, color, value and line are always on the top priority list when executing a non-objective piece. One does not have a subject in mind, it is all intuitive.
This demonstration will show APS members how Rae thinks on how to compose her paintings; whether a realistic subject or not.
Beginning with a fluid freeform abstract shape in liquid acrylics, Rae then uses her pastel overlays, sometimes discovering a semi-recognizable subject within the paint she can build on.
Fun, yes..However to many artists with no real subject in mind, this way of painting is a great challenge.
Come along and join the fun. Maybe you will be tempted to try some of Rae's techniques? Even in a landscape or a floral painting, the steps could be improvised.
Hope to see you there..
