Sky study 19


It was fun using some "old-fashioned" pastel paper (Ingres) for a change of pace. There's definitely, when using this sort of paper, a sweet spot where you have just enough pastel but not so much as to kill the sparkle.

My darling Fang.
But don't let his angelic sleeping demeanor fool you--he's a hellion when awake.

These are the kinds of clouds we look at here at sunset and elbow each other saying " hurry, look at that one, it's a French poodle", or, " don't you see a snowman with mauve tights"?.
Love that dark underbelly.
Not Fangs'.

Funny you say he's a hellion.
I just said that about Cloud as we walked her past a big Rotwieller and it was all I could do to keep her from wanting to tear at him.

Hi Bonnie! I think I need to rename this one now: Snowman in Mauve Tights sounds just right.

Rumi is SUCH a little wild maniac when he's awake. It's literally to the point where we fear him waking up. You can only get anything done while he sleeps. :) And if he saw a Rottweiler, the problem with him is he would run straight up to expecting to make friends.
