Hi all,

On October 29th (5:30 in the crisp morning) Mars and Jupiter could be seen in company of a nice crescent moon. I decided to sketch the scenery, with a graphite pencil and then with pastel and gel pen.

Thank you guys! Considering that the sky of Montreal is heavily light-polluted I was rather pleased to see some nice stars with Jupiter and Mars. It was fun to sketch and even more pleasant to read you kind words!
