Fine sketches, especially the moon drawing! I never tried sketching with watercolor pencils, but it looks to work fine.

Damian,

Three beautiful sketches. The lunar sketch looks to be the most involved but all of them are high quality.

Nice sketches Damian, the Moon is second to none. Just bought the e-book Sketching The Moon from the Patrick Moore series, that one should have been in it.
