Here's an old drawing. I could just scan.
It was not easy to draw. Initially it was very vibrant in the air. Before it became very cold. My fingers froze. But the air has become very clear. It was obvious a lot of detail. More than what I could draw it.

I have an admiration of those who can pull off such nice work with lunar sketching. Having tried it, I understand the work that goes into doing one and getting it right. This one is well done on many levels.

Incredible! The use of gel pens really gives an extra contrast boost. Do you just apply it on top of the pastel?

Roel, Thank You !

I have used the gel pen at the end of the drawing. This was the last step.
I could not pastel pencil and eraser to draw a thin line.
I just tried out the first gel pen.
