Re: "DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE" Rich's Double Star Sketches [Re: asteroid7]
      #809164 - 02/04/06 08:36 AM

Hi asteroid7,

I use paint to make double star drawings also.Your technique is better than mine. My paint is 5.1 version. Do you know what paint 8 has that 5.1 doesn't? That question is probably way too general.

The things I have trouble with are the sizes & appearances of the stars. I started out making the stars with the air brush & then changed to using an ellipse to make a circle & then filling the circle with color.

I notice your stars are much more realistic (look like view at the eyepiece)than mine.Also, I don't seem able to control subtle colors the way you do.

If you don't mind sharing your technique I would really appreciate hearing about it.

I always really enjoy getting your sketches. If you publish a book (maybe you already have) on double star drawing I would buy a copy.

Thanks,

Robert
