Sketchers,

As you can see from previous submissions in the Sketching Contest and also at our Sketching Threads at Cloudy Nights, we have many superb sketchers here.

When submitting your sketch for this month’s sketching contest please include: Your name, Date, Object sketched, Your location, Equipment used, magnification used (if known), Sketching medium, Conditions (seeing, transparency). Please put this information above or below the sketch but not directly on the sketch.

If you need further information see: Sketching guidelines 101  pinned at the top of this page and
Sketching Contest with Sample Format Starting December 2017 also pinned at the top of this page.

Good Luck, this is just for fun, so don't be shy go for it.
