Three days in the life of crater Philolaus

No, this was not planned! In the first place this is impossible to plan with the famous Belgian weather... I sketched crater Philolaus (Norhtpole region) on saturday. Sunday it was clear again and I saw the double central peak on the craterfloor of Philolaus. A good reason to sketch it again. And monday... no clouds. I just couldn't resist to sketch it a third time

Jef,

A very impressive sunrise sequence.
It take a bit of good luck and persistence to accomplish this.
Best of all you sketching style is great.

Hi Jef,

a truly remarkable piece of astronomical art! I like the way you show the daily development of the terminator.

Wow, Jef, this is fantastic! Both from an illustrator's POV and an observer's POV. That's quite the intricate region to sketch, and it's beautifully rendered in a very realistic 3-D style.

Jef,

Quite the series!!!! I think this is your best work yet. The way the changing light describes the topography and your representation of it is really captivating. This is one that really invites study.

Jef,
Great idea and very well executed! You really seized the opportunity here. I like the Jan. 11th drawing with those dramatic shadows.

Did you use gray paper?
