Some globulars from last night

I set myself a goal a couple months ago of sketching the Messier objects and its something I'm really enjoying.
These globulars have become my favourite objects to sketch, so many different shapes and asterisms inside them that I missed before I started sketching.

These are very fine captures of these globulars. When you look at these you can clearly see the variations in shape and brightness. Inspiring!

I use the Mellish technique so use white pastels and white ink pen.
What are you using for the white?

M4 is also a fav' of mine with its striking 'belt'. If you are up for a challenge, try for the little GC that resides within the boundary of the giant cluster M7. It will test you to tease out detail from it at high magnification as it is highly obscured by galactic dust. I use this little GC as a quick check of seeing conditions too.
