Hi everyone,

Here's a link to my report from today's session. PCW Memorial 2012 08 14 - NOAA 11543

I concentrated on AR 1543, using my typical black Strathmore paper with white Conte' crayon and pencil, charcoal pencil and oil pencil, then colorized it in Photoshop CS2 with the hue/saturation adjustment feature.

Erika,

very interesting report. Your sketch is very detailed and looks terrific. Your technique is certainly something I will try in a near future!

Erika,

Very nice drawing--lots of activity in this AR to capture. It must have been tough in that heat. Your colors look pretty accurate to me. That kind of processing is not something I've been able to master.
