The Atmosphere in here is Awful!

sepia-landscape

Some experimentation with atmospheric effects today.  First up is a simple landscape in gouache.  This one is on a thick piece of BFK.

Next up, some odd little boxes with things above them.  Both are smeared graphite, but the item on the left i started out with an undercoat of H pencil, then built tone up over top, then a faint watercolor wash for "flavor".  I wrote a note on the bottom wondering if the wash was a mistake, but looking at it today, I don't know why, it worked out ok.
