Uwe,

Very nice Mars sketch. Looks very colorful and you can tell in your sketch the following side is in the shadow.

Dear Lynn,

I am looking forwar to see your planet sketches! Do'nt expact too much from you first observations. We have to lern to see and to sketch. You can compare this sketch with my first one from this season, there is a lage difference.

Uwe, like you said... you catch every sketch more and more detail. Saddly, Mars is getting smaler and smaler.
