It was quite hot this morning -1°C plus Mistral (north local wind)... "Hot" in comparison with the André usual observing temperatures...
Anyway I would like to see again the rising of Mercury from my terrace.
Bottom-up we can see: Mercury near the chimney and Venus close to the Moon.
The watercolour was done on the spot. After the blue wash, I take off the pigment for the planets with a brush when the paper was not yet dry. I add some hot coloration to the dark part of the very old Moon. Then I scanned the picture, for you.
Just under the Moon we can see the ruines of the old castle of Rocbaron.
The clouds are there just to animate the picture,... in fact, no clouds were present this morning.
Clear sky to you all ! Michel
