First sketch of the new year...
The moon was a beautiful sight this morning, great transparency but seeing was a bit difficult. Nevertheless these craters stood out from all the rest, great elongated shadows near the terminator giving stark contrast to the gray/white flat surface. I'll admit knowing little about these craters, it was the way they looked that made me want to sketch and photograph them.
Sketch done at the eyepiece, black Canson pastel paper, white and black charcoal blended with a Q-tip and fingers. Image scanned and converted to .jpg.
