January the 10th the two inner planets of our solar system are very close. Following the nice pastel sketch made by Frank Jan 6th (ASOD Feb 2nd) I will take the opportunity to compare its view with this I made 4 days later.
While my watercolor session, a probable Quadrantide meteor produce a brilliant flash.

The two planets are easily seen in the field of my UWA EP.

Clear sky to you all !

  1. Michel,

    I love this watercolor sketching style of yours.
    There may be some artists that make these ‘astronomical landscape and sky’ sketches that are as excellent but no one makes them better.
    BEAUTIFUL!

    Frank 🙂
