Hi.

Here I have to admit, the close up is a real piece of art. I drawn this one once but missed about the dimension and scale. So I restarted a second time with a better and more real look. Let me tell you I took a minimum of 30 minute to draw this extremely complex structure. Man that was heavy... imagine twice !!! I spent more than one hour on this one. The size was the same in my eyepiece. The proportions are very accurate.

Andre.

Andre,
Massive flare. Your drawing is very much alive with the capture. It looks beautiful at 300X. Nice work.

Superb André ! Your new serie of sun sketches is lovely. Nice to see that the sky is clear enough for you in your country.

Thank you. Still three sketches to post soon. The weather have been extremely good since the end of april. We just get out of a 6 days clear sky from sunrise to sunset, absolutely no clouds. That was wonderful. And superb stability. We had once a transparency and seeing of 5/5 for a whole night.

Hi André, it´s not like here, since weeks, we don't have a typical blue provençal sky.
Here Jannik is angry with the bad visibility

That was like that most of winter. Always a thin cloud's layer but not totally blue like last week. I wish better skies soon. I understand your frustration.
