Color theory says blue mixed with red gives violet. Not so simple... two weeks of mixing and tweeking and more mixing and this is what I have.

|Graphite on 180gsm Paper, 10"*6'"|
Following Diane's tutorial on clouds, I crosshatched the sky area with a F .5mm mechanical pencil. After blending the whole area with a paper towel, I sculpt the clouds with a plastic eraser. I keep working on the clouds erasing and darkening till I am satisfied with the results.
For the rest of the picture I have used .5mm mechanical pencils with a 2B lead for the darkest tones, F, 2H and 4H for the lighter tones.

|Charcoal, carbon and graphite pencil on Vellum Bristol. 10"*6"|
For the bright sun lite parts of the chain, a series of reverse burnishing, starting with 7H then 4H and finally 2H to get the rough texture. The white of the paper were preserved by stippling with a empty ballpoint pen before hand.

|Acrylics on gessoed watercolor paper.|
Wanted to paint loose with minimal attention to detail, with emphasis on the brush strokes. The whole painting took me about 2 hrs in two sittings Spent an hour or so drawing the sketch on a rough paper, transferring it onto the watercolor paper and laying down few initials layers of paint. I let the paint dry over night and finished the painting the next day.

|Graphite on A4 paper.|
After a few days of mourning I have made peace with the fact that I might not achieve the required results. After a few final adjustments, am calling this finished.
