What an amazing day!...I managed to view at 100x during the whole session so scale went out the window...

Crayola Cerulean for the plage
Crayola Aqua Green pencil for proms
Conti white pastel for prominences
white 20# paper with Aqua Green disk
I scan into photoshop and invert.

Stephen,

Very impressive. The sun seems to be making your sketching a bit more work and that is great. :bow: :rainbow:
