Hi.

It look like the sun is going back to high activity. There is lot of action up there and very nice to watch.

This series it awesome Andre. They look almost photographic. Do you mind if I ask about some of the details? How long does it take to make one of these draawings? Do you start from scratch for every sketch or do you have pre-printed images to star with and add the details. Do you use ink or pencils or paint/pastels? Sorry for the grilling, but I'm just in awe and I'm ignorant of how to do it.

Thanks for your answers and your art!
