Intro to Sketching Video
      #5599043 - 01/01/13 01:45 AM

I just finished uploading my first video attempt at a basic intro to astronomical sketching. It contains a demonstration of M81/82 being sketched, showing use of blending stump and kneaded eraser. I always thought those two tools were difficult to describe with words and still photos...so maybe video will do a little better job at that.

You're right: much better than words and photos!

Great video and tutorial Jeremy! You gave me a good idea as well. I use circles in a diameter of 7.5cm, which is probably too small in the dark with my red light. I think 12cm will be better as it is larger and easier to see.

Excellent art work as well!

Thanks for the great tutorial! Looking forward to seeing more! PS: I loved that Space Shuttle launch! Must have been incredible to see that live.

Cheers,

Excellent! Thank you for this New Year's gift, Jeremy. The stump technique for creating the faint structures is simple yet brilliant.

Jeremy.

Wow, so well done and informative. Now I can visualize how DSO sketches are done. Thank you so much for your effort in this video.

Well, honestly I prefer solar sketching, much easier to do and require less equipment. I really don't know if one day I'll go for DSO sketching ? But its fun to see how to proceed.

Andre.

Jeremy,

Wonderful! This is the best way so far to show folks that are not sitting in a room with you how to sketch astronomical targets. Beautifully done.

Frank

Great Video Jeremy,
I came across your belt of venus site a few months ago. Great sketches. I finally decided a few weeks ago to get some supplies a blending stump, pencils, skecthbook and eraser and try to sketch. Using a CD for the eyepiece circle. I've completed about 10 sketches. They are not of your skill level but it has helped my observing. This video will help alot I was always putting the pencil down on the paper and blending in place which made it way too dark. This was some great advice.

Clear Skies and keep sketching. Looking forward to see more of your work.

Excellent sketching tutorial, thank you! Now to figure out a way to comfortably sketch in -30°C weather.
