Am the last man standing trying to split Sirius?

So, if art can illicit a response, it must be good art, Enemy. That's my response.

Really like what you're doing with color!

TE,

Excellent observations of interesting double stars. The pup is always a nice catch. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

10th,

Really like these double sketches--the diffraction spikes add an extra dimension.

Question: are these inverted graphite sketches?

Really nice work on Sirius! You managed to capture the glare in a very realistic way.

Thank you all for your comments! I've been wanting to split Sirius for a few years. All my previous attempts were unsuccessful, the seeing doesn't often cooperate here. Then one night the companion was obvious, though still within the glare of Sirius, so I sketched it.

The stars are ink and the spikes and smudges are graphite. I've settled on this as my preferred method for all my deep sky sketches.
