I am very new at sketching, this being the first one I’d consider worthy of uploading. It was drawn from a photo of Copernicus crater I brought up on my computer screen as practice for the sketching course I’m currently taking. I’m still struggling to convey a sense of depth, as well as develop a rapid technique that I will need when I am at the eyepiece of my telescope.
