    Mountain torrent (duplicated and blurred layer)

    Here it is ... form a small picture on paper as a reference. Mouse only.
    I think I should blur it to some extent. Chalk is a little too grainy on the JPEG, much more than it looks on original ArtRage format.

    I duplicate the layer and slightly blurred the one underneath.

    Well done Caesar.. That's a neat trick, duplicating and blurring only one. Good one to keep in mind.

    Both are just beautiful, but I love the texture of the first!

    Very nice Caesar. It's fun seeing the different comments. For whatever reasons, I have a leaning towards the unblurred version - it somehow seems more "immediate". But both are quite nice.

    EDIT. I went back and looked again. Now I like the second one better.

    Thank You all, dear Barnburner, ATPlus, Waheed, Sandra, MacPix and Byron.
    Actually I should improve the process to use more effectively chalk. Anyway I appreciated the natural colors in the original picture and the composition was good too, so I decided to tranfer them in this color spots salad somehow and hoped to keep some uniformity and impression effect by using chalk without covering in full the sheet light hue.
    Hope to do better in the future.

    Caesar - This is beautiful. I have found, when I want the chalk to have more of a smmoth pastel application, I can smooth & blend with the first knife setting.
