Rich,

I don't know how you maintain such a high skill level in your lunar sketching but you certainly do. You make the Conte' on black paper look like paint on canvas. I love the way you capture all the subtleties of brightness. It makes you drawing look alive. Great work. Awesome! :bow: :cool: :rainbow:

Frank :)

Coming from a lunar sketcher of such consummate skill I regard that a very high compliment! :D

Rich,

A wonderful observation of Philolaus and the ancient lunar terrain surrounding it. You have captured the steeped terrain very nicely. I will have to review this crater myself soon. Thank you for sharing it with us all. We have missed your fine lunar renderings.

Carlos
