Launch of James Webb Telescope on Ariane5

This is a mixed media artwork of the Launch of the James Webb Telescope on an Ariane5 rocket. I used Caran D’Arche Luminance pencils and ChromaColour acrylic on white artist card. I used a photograph of the launch as the base of my artwork, but I took certain liberties in order to redefine the image to my own desires, such as not including any of the gantry hardware and darkening down the colours that I used in order to emphasis the brilliance of the plume.
