It's sure that it's a good moon period for the CloudyNights sketching forum!

To be certain that I cover all the nice sketches posted here since 4 nights, I did a pastel of all the Moon.

Just a little bit less than 2h at the EP plus 3 minutes facing the PC screen (to scan)

 

I used my 6" f8 refractor with a 40mm EP and a polarising filter. 

Sketch: grey pastel, white pastel and black pastel on Canson 240gr. black paper.

General athmospheric condition 4/5

Clear sky for more moon sketch to you all !

Michel,

 

Beautiful sketch of the Moon.waytogo.gif 

I like seeing these lunar sketches here.

It restores my faith that the Moon could be in my sky same day in the future.

Thank you all for your kind words and motivated like's.

As you know maybe we have two B&B in the area of my little observatory.  I call that approach "Bed and Telescope" lol.gif . Often the visitors came to have a look at the scope.  While looking at my sketch one visitor ask me to buy the original pastel, funny no?

Michel,

 

It may be time for you to start thinking about publishing your watercolors and sketches.

You could throw in some sail boats too.

 

Frank :)

Thank you Frank; coming from someone who did it, I mean writing a book, I'm very proud.

So you push this idea fast forward now !
To thank you for the sailing idea, here a watercolor I did on board of my sailing boat (Aquarellia),

That was last year approaching the famous French "Calanques" near Cassis, this is something looking as serie of scottish loch's.
