Sometimes it is the contrast of a natural sky event that puts unnatural surroundings in better perspective.

Very evocative and beautiful Roland! Wonderful Moon and surrounding scene. You found something so serene in the "concrete jungle". :bow: :bow: :bow:

Roland,

A beautiful observation and prose of a fleeting look at a golden Moon. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thanks Rich and Carlos.

Rich...you mentioned once before (I thought) a tutorial or something similar where you talk about how to do "mounds" or higher areas on the moon. If I am not mistaken, do you have a link to that material? I referenced it to Michael, also, so may be others would like to see it too.

Hi Roland,

I started a brief introduction to sketching domes but I haven't finished it yet. I know I promised it some time back. I'll see about finishing it this weekend and posting it in the Sketching Forum.

No complaint here...don't rush. I just did not want to miss it if it went by me during travels. Roland
