Hello friends of sketching the moon,

 

this night I was finally able to sketch the moon again, even if the viewing window is limited by the very tall plants of the direct neighbor. But it was just enough before the moon finally disappeared into the trees.

Thanks for watching and have a nice weekend, clear skies Jens

I looked at Plato yesterday too and thought about sketching it. I switched to something other, however. Thank you for sharing..

Fine sketch. I'm jealous of how well you can sketch mountains!

Hello Jens,

a great sketch of this dark-floored crater. And I like the bright Mons Pico!

Clear skies!
