Very nice sketches indeed! It's nice to see someone post "original" works before they're being edited on the PC etc. Love them!

Great, I agree!
I like to compare our sketches and the sun lights.
Yesterday 16th the sky was not veru transparent... so today 17th...

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

The very different styles of presenting the sun is fascinating, challenging and ever encouraging.

Mel,

A fine pair of observational sketches--hope all the activity continues. I looked with my PST on Sat., the 19th and was astonished at how much was going on. It was windy and the seeing was very poor so I didn't attempt a sketch. Look in the Solar forum for images made on that day and you'll see what I mean.

I agree--I like seeing all the different styles and presentations. :)
