Sky study 12


...And some skies are more delicate.

I've always thought Lynx looks very owl-like. You can decide for yourself:

I love all these colors of gray!

oooh, this one is my favorite. And one vote of agreement about owl-like Lynx.

Karen Bruson said...

You are so funny!
Love the sky. It is just lovely.

Casey Klahn said...

That is a very sensitive blue sky. I wonder if that is a quality of Pastelmat - the ability to, with your skill, make light blue without strokes showing.

Hi Sam - I also love neutrals...how many different colors are actually in gray?...

It's Loriann's favorite of the skies! :) Lynx says "hoo."

Thank you, Karen!

Hi Casey - Thank you very much. You don't use (much?) PastelMat, right? I think you're a LaCarte guy...yes? I love LaCarte too. They're so different.

i like your sky paintings that posted in daily painters abstract gallery....

Janelle Goodwin said...

You made me laugh out loud! I guess Lynx does look like an owl. I think your sky paintings are amazing. I can just picture them displayed all together.

Karen said...

Jala, these sky pieces are SO stunning. I'm so fascinated by them, their variations, what you said about how we see them as skies even without the reference of horizon line, etc., their delicate-ness. Just beautiful.

Oh, yes indeed, very much the owl.
(Have you ever painted your feline friends?)

Caroline said...

Your sky studies are just stunning. I didn't realise they were painted in pastels as they look like they could be oil paintings too.

Jala Pfaff said...

Lavennz - Thank you! Is that an Eastern European name? Just curious.

Thanks, Janelle. Well, I'm not the ONLY one who thinks he looks like an owl, then. I feel better now.

Thank you, Karen. I guess I'm finding them pretty fascinating, too, seeing as how I still keep doing them.

R - hoo hoo (says Lynx). I've never painted them...though Rumi's white body looks like a great blank canvas (haha).

Hi Caroline - Thank you very much. Yep, pastels, although one of these days I really must get around to trying some skies in oil!
