For all, but mainly for André, I send you the sun :cool:, just 6h before you receive it in America!
The sun's very animated today, be ready !
Today I used another technique : red watercolor wash only

Beautiful, Michel, really beautiful! What a wonderful "inverted S"-like structure on the bottom right!

Congrats!

Peter

Wonderful sketch. You have great mastery of all the medias you use in your sketching and watercolors.
Always a pleasure to see.

Michel.

Yes, I agree, it's really neat. Thank you. I'm just back from my dome, I'm preparing today's sketches.

Michel got this prom as it was still active and brighter as me I got it when almost evaporated into space. Mine is much fainter.

Thanks for your comments, always nice !
Peter, I was very interested by the S structure as well, I planned to make a zoom at the end of my first sketch, but then, the structure was nearly gone. I have to sketch more quickly !
André, it´s because the earth was rotate too slow feb. 16. No ?
