Copernicus Crater

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.

  1. That is a good way to learn how to sketch craters in preparation for sketching at the eyepiece.

  2. Its nice to be able to sketch from a photo and get all the details right and as Frank said great practice for the eyepiece! Keep up the good work!
