Hazy Moon with Owl #015


Here is another try at capturing a hazy moon .... this time on better paper: Strathmore Imperial 140# rough. Better paper is a big help!

The scene is inspired by a great horned owl we spotted years ago when in Grand Teton Nation Park, although I must admit that night had a very clear sky.

I love the somber, almost lonely, feel of this Elva. And you certainly did capture that hazy moon~~

Looks great Elva. I love the owl sitting there and faint trees in the distance.

...as I'm a night owl, I really appreciate your night paintings. When all the chatter of the day fades away, focus come easily. I feel the quiet and focus of night in this painting.

This is a wonderful image, Elva! You captured, beautifully, the moment and the mood.

I'm not sure why, but I would love to see just a hint of color in the "air" for this! Lovely sketch!

I agree, Laure. It looks muddy and dreary. I tend to be too conservative wtih my night skies. .... Guess I should try again.
