Andrea Varangu

Soft Pastel

1152bRednersville Rd. CR3
( 613) 966 – 1387

Andrea paints County landscapes, and waterscapes, still lifes and ‘not-so-still’ lifes with soft pastel to produce paintings with both vibrant colour and soft and luminescent quality.  Her work is representational and impressionistic with a focus on the effect of sunlight on her subjects.

This is a medium she loves because of its tactility and richness of hue.  Soft pastels are pure sticks of dry pigment, which Andrea applies directly in layers onto sanded paper.  As she says, “What I love best about pastel is that there is nothing between me and the colour in my hand.”
