Using an image of Jupiter (Wesley's original discovery image of the black spot from CN!) I used chalk pastels to color a sketch. It is very hard to get the colors right but hopefully it will convey the general idea!

Very nice sketch, notice how the impact has changed since it was first discovered.

Paul,

Welcome to the Cloudy Nights Sketching Forum. Your Jupiter rendering based upon an image made by Anthony Wesley is excellent. The placement of the major bands and color is accurate. We look forward to your future observations.

Carlos
