Lunar Crater Harpalus
Sketch and Details by Szklenár Tamás

Object Name: Harpalus crater

Object Type: Lunar crater

Location: Hungary, Csabacsüd, 20° 39′ 07″ 46° 49′ 29″

Harpalus is an exciting object on the Moon, I made the sketch with graphite pen to white paper. The 20 minutes of the drawing was only the making of the base lines and colors – shadow intensity. The next day I finished it by my table, this was about an hour long drawing.
