February 26th sun sketch
      #5702091 - 02/26/13 05:03 PM

Hi.

Finally got a chance to sketch the sun in a 30 minutes thinner cloud layer. No real clear sky, just thinner clouds making me able to see through. That was the only chance of the day. Overcast continue for a couple more days.



Andre.

Well done André. Sometime, here in South France I cross my fingers to have good weather in Canada, just to see your sun sketches.

Hi guys. Thank you so much.

Michel. It's terrible how much clouds we have in this second half of the month and it's not finish yet. Snow storm is coming for the next three days. I really miss the sun in a magnificient blue sky.

Thanks for prying for us.

Andre

Amazing! How long does it take you to do something like that?

Really, truly fine work!

Terrific Andre, glad to see a little more surface activity showing up. The proms have been fun lately and I love your depiction of them!

Thanks Ash.

Doing a full disk like this is about 20 minutes because not too much surface details. Lately in the past days, the surface was full of filaments and it was taking more than 30 minutes. A close up view is much easier and faster, within 10 minutes.

Thanks Warren, really kind.

Andre.

At last... I was already wondering where you'd got to!

Excellent, as always, André!

Andre,

The proms make the sun look hairy.
Great sketching.
