Hi.

If I'm missing some details, not because I didn't see them but because the very fast moving clouds allowing me to observe for very short periods of time.

No time for close up except one but very few time to do it. The sun was beautiful today. It's sad I didn't have much time to make more close up. I did a close up of the beautiful floating one at 11 o'clock and the other one at 4 o'clock was very nice too.

Andre.

Andre,
My daughter just said the sketch is amazing. She asked how you do it? She is 6 and her name is Emma. She wanted me to say she says Hello and good job on the sketch.

Ahahahaha... Cute Emma. Thank you for your comment darling. How I do it...hmmmm. I do like you when you draw the sun but as I use a telescope, I can see more details.

Thanks Ken.

Andre,
She thought it was a picture, she couldn't believe how good it looked. She actually said maybe I should get some lessons from you. I said I should but you were a bit far away. She said well glad you have some pen pals in Canada I liked visiting there.

Another great sketch and my little girl is of to bed thinking how does that man draw the Sun so well with just pencils.

Thanks again for sharing.


Ken

These are great and yes, the Sun was very active. Watched it rotate through the day on and off.

What can I add, André? The reaction of Emma tells it all.

Your sketch is a masterpiece. Keep them coming my friend.

Andre,
I will show her the fish when she is home from school. I am sure she would love a look as well as I. Maybe someday we will be taking a trip to your area. I would sure love to watch you sketch. You are a true artist and a wonderful visual observer.

The sun I shining here today. Hope it will for you to give us another view of your sketches.

Thank you very much all.

Thanks to you Ken for this great comment. I would be glad to have your visit for sure. As you are not that far from me, bring Emma having a sight in my scope.

It was supposed to be fully sunny today, but actually overcast as usual.

Andre.

Andre,
Emma saw the fish after school and was happy to see it. She also sees a sliding board and a tiara.
