Hi.

Two more sketches from this morning sun. My observing conditions in my backyard are really turbulent this morning and I'm unable to magnify more than 180X.

Observing conditions a bit better for finer details.

First sketch of the surface only.

Colin.

Thanks for the comment.

It's an usual 8 1/2 X 11 white sheet on which I have a stencil of the sun surface. On first sketches, I was using Staedtler drawing pencils for B&W and because of big problems colorizing them in photoshop, I changed for another brand of fine color pencils to make the proms in color prior to colorize the surface with photoshop.

Andre.
