Sketch of a too calm Sun

Location of photo

Lunt 35mm.
I decide to sketch during the sun sets. First of all, 10 minutes before the sun sets I sketched the different prom's An airplane help me to define more or less a parallel to the horizon, however the horizon there is not horizontal... At the end I had to sketch the deformations of the sun disk because of the refraction as well as the trees in the "far" foreground. After digitalisation I invert the sketch and add a color calc.
