I was asked to find a speaker for our next club meeting.

 

I would like to have someone review the basics of sketching.

 

What are the tools you use?

What techniques do you use?

Can you show us some of your results?

What mistakes did you learn along the way?

What are the goals you have for the future?

 

If you are interested in giving a presentation about your experiences sketching ... how they add to your view, and how they are different from photography . . . send me a pm. please

 

Thanks.

Great topic! I hope you find someone in your area who can help. I think many amateurs may not be aware that drawing the night skies is not only possible but also very rewarding, even if one does not have great artistic skill.

Concerning this Presentation request:

The meeting will be a Zoom Meeting. The presenter can be located anywhere, as long as they can join a Zoom Call.

Meeting time will be 7:30 pm EDT to 8:30 pm EDT.

 

I'm hoping a presenter can explain the tools and techniques. And show off some of the work.
