It's been a bit warm here the last few days... this low pressure front coming in yesterday evening was a welcome relief!

Now that is a happier sky than the other ones you posted

before, the ones with the yellow tinge. I like blue, I

like happy blue skies. I guess the sky goes

through different moods too sometimes.

Well, I liked the blue sky too... but I especially liked that it came with cooler weather. 

 

I never have taken to heat all that well and now that I am getting older all kinds of unpleasant things start happening when I get hot... like my feet tend to swell up.  :\

 

The yellowish cast to those other pictures you are talking about was caused from taking pictures in the direction of the sun. My poor little camera couldn’t take it all that well.    I still liked some of the shots that came out though, but yes, they are more somber than these blue sky pictures.

Thanks Ariane. 

 

I'll be wishing for the return of that Cool Relief starting about tomorrow. It has been rather mild lately but we are expecting a heat wave over the next few days. Looks like Wednesday will be the worst one.

 

Speaking of pastels, I was just thinking last night I should dig those out of their dusty storage space and play with them for a while. It was a thought that passed without me moving from my chair though.  :\

 

I have not worked with pastels all that much but I have played around with them a couple times. One piece I did with pastels turned out fairly well though, I will see about posting a scan of it sometime soon.

I have not touched pastels since years too ! I plan to take art classes as of september (2 hours/per week) as I used to when I was 16. It was not professional/academic classes, but just for leisure. As the end of that year, I used to "play" with pastels, draw landscape or even Degas's classic dancers. It was really fun, our teacher was a cool italian guy that studied at the Beaux-Arts School at Paris.
 
There are classes for teenages and other for adults. Now if I chose to subcribe again, I bet the majority of people will be retired people since I will have to follow the adults courses !

Great pics Mac   I like the clouds in them most as they are really relaxing to just watch.
