Moon Illusion
Sketch and Details Mark Seibold

Technical info:

After observing the moon rising in September 2008 from Downtown Portland between high buildings, I returned home to observe the surface features through my 10.1″ Newtonian reflector telescope. I rendered the details in pastel chalk on 19″ X 25″ Black Canson pastel paper for a two hour period. Then from memory, I returned inside to add the perspective of downtown buildings and pedestrian silhouettes on the sidewalk.
