If anyone is interested, there will be a solar sketching workshop at NEAF this year. Northeast Astronomy Forum and Telescope Show

The first portion of it will be held inside. The second portion will be live sketching outside with the use of several Lunt and Meade/Coronado h-alpha scopes. Everyone will receive their own sketching packet to use for the workshop and then take home with them, based on the sketch media I use.

If the weather is bad, we'll stay inside for sketch practice using images from Greg Piepol.

This will be for both beginners and seasoned sketchers. I'll be covering both white light and h-alpha sketching, full disks as well as close up work. There will also be a section on how I process my sketches for the collages.

Hope to you there! It should be a lot of fun. :jump:

Erika,

Good for NEAF for hosting this workshop. People who attend are in for a real treat (and very instructive time). :cool: I wish I could go--I'd love to take your workshop--but I can't get away.

It looks like I'll be doing sketching workshops again this summer at the Green Bank StarQuest. I really appreciate that these star party organizers are including sketching in their workshop schedules. :)

Great sketches.
I wish I could attend the NEAF solar sketching.
I'm sure your presentations will be wonderful.
