The Grandeur of Clavius

I also tried using plain black construction paper. In high moisture conditions and during the first hour or so, the atmosphere tends to give it more "tooth". In addition, black construction paper is never really black but more like an uneven off-black, so black marks for shadow still show up.
In any case, the sketch and story are ar linked from our Inspiration Page. The story is the top left story on the page with a link to the full sketch/story.

This is your best write up and lunar sketch to date. A valued lesson and sensational rendering of Clavius. I witnessed this view at the time of your sketch.

An excellent and inspirational observation and story of the grand crater Clavius. A calm Summer night with this magnificent crater on your monitor should inspire anyone. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
