Scenic Tuscan

Graphite on 180gsm Paper, 10"*6'"
Practicing clouds. Diane Wright, whom I have mentioned before has excellent tutorials on her website. I keep going back to her blog and website for inspiration and tips.
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.
