Hi.

Once again, lot of clouds this morning with some small breaks to give me the chance to sketch. But unfortunately, no time for any close up and my wish was to be able to sketch a close up of this enormous prom. I've not been able to render it exactly at this scale, much too small.

Andre.

Thanks Ken.

I imagine you saw the nice pics of this prom lifting off in the solar section ! That was really impressive.

Oh, what a pity. It's one of the most massive and most beautiful you've ever captured... Superb drawing, though... :D

Thank you all.

Jef, you are a good observer. You are totally right. I'll change that later tonight. Thanks, I didn't remark myself.

Andre.
