As you can see from previous submissions over the months and years in the Sketching Contests and also in our Sketching Threads at Cloudy Nights, we have many excellent 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: "Thread of interest in Sketching, including our contest" pinned at the top of this page:  also at the same location find ‘Sketching guidelines 101’
Good Luck, this is just for fun.
