Hi everyone,

Finally! I had some time on August 26th to observe our moon. The crater Copernicus offered un nice view under good seeing conditions.

Here is the sketch I made of one of my favorite crater. This time I decided to use my Nikon Coolpix to take a picture instead of using my scanner (a piece of junk). Processing in PS only to erase smears and add a title and some info. I am still not sure if I like the effect of the paper texture, though.

Hope you like it.

Jean

I don't. Some sketchers can manipulate the texture (I can't). But still a beautiful sketch!

I agree with Jef that some people can really make textured paper 'sing'.
Lovely sketch though Jean. :)

Jean,

The Copernicus crater sketch is wonderful and you handle that textured paper better than I do. The best use I can see for it (textured paper) would be to use a poster size sheet and lay the chalk on thick.

Frank :)
