Sketches of the Summer

Didn’t think I haven’t been sketching did you now? Summer is coming to a close, at least for me, and the following are that work.  I always want to sketch more and more, but it sometimes can be a process more than an hour long, Which is rather difficult standing on a ladder in the dark several feet above the ground.  Anyway, here they are.  Clicking on each sketch will open the full resolution view.

One thought on “Sketches of the Summer

  1. Hi Justin
    Been awhile since I last checked your Blog and it looks like you’ve been busy. Your sketches are always excellent. I was especially impressed with NGC-5194-95 you have realy got your pencil blending technique down cold. You did quite well with NGC-6514 considering your light pollution proplem. Nice work on both NGC-6618 and 6523. Haven’t been able to use the 16-inch due too the monsoons would like to get out there before the cold weather sets in maybe get an early look at Orion. I tryed to get on Cloudy Nights awhile back but I guess their re-working the web-site so I diden’t have access to it. Will close for now and hope to talk to you soon..
