Hello to all,

Today we had a sunny morning, only the sky was crossed with light cirrus clouds. Why shouldn’t I look to the sun? The sun came up with some sunspot groups and an bright area (maybe flares?) on me. I could not help, I took the drawing pad an my pencil and start to draw. Maybe the sunspots in overview are little bigger than they real were, but I think the details outside the circle are located close to the original. Hope you like it too.

With sunny regards

Florian Köhler
