Well, dude, a lot of people took off work to travel a long distance to see the eclipse. Today, they are either still traveling or back at work! I'm just exhausted after working so hard to organize an event for my hometown that was on the centerline!

A singular event spanning only very few minutes that comes with strong recommendations for looking at the event itself and ignoring the gear, etc., that might distract from the irreplaceable observation seems to me to be the antithesis of a sketching opportunity.

About the only way to sketch a Total Solar Eclipse which only lasts a few minutes is to record an audio of what you are watching in detail in terms of corona, prominences, colors, planets and stars visible etc..  A powerful memory for detail would help. That is a tall order but it can and has been done.
Another way would be to take a photo during totality and sketch it after the eclipse ends. The 'purists' among the sketchers would frown upon this method.

Agreed Frank.  But to the purists I'd say the photo reference can help correct feature positions and stuff.  It wouldnt be easy to pull off but , well I'm no purist lol. Been enjoying your work Frank.

I’ve been enjoying seeing the drawings folks are pulling off from memory of the moment that have been showing up in the forum :)

My contraction could be seen as "where IS all the" and this simply won't do.  Amazing I didn't catch that. My gratis Mike!
