At the moment I am feeling my way with pastel application so that I get some of the paper covered. This is done lightly.
The mountain has purple and blue scraped on the paper then rubbed into the support. This will have numerous lighter tones laid over the top. I find this helps give me depth in the mountain rather than a flat expanse of area.
As you can see I did take the middle tree out that has the dark trunk. I felt that it was too centered and not good for the over all design.
Hopefully I will have anther posting tomorrow.
