Venus as a star, once more,…
Object Name (Venus transit…)
Location (Néoules – Provence – France)
Date (06-06-2012 & 13-06-2012)
Media (red wine, graphite pencil, watercolour)
I made this sketch directly while the sun was rising, just with pencil on white paper.
I had to sketch very quickly.
Today, at home I used yellow watercolour and black for the dark part of the sky
For the clouds I used red wine pigment, from here we are in France.
I was on a hill, the time for this sketch was 3:50, 2 or 3 minutes before the theoretical sunrise time, so my telescope was downwardly inclined. Strange and fantastic souvenir.
Clear sky to you all

Superbe dessin, Michel! Ça devait être en effet un expérience visuelle inoubliable.
A beautiful work of astronomy art.
A wonderful work Michel and I love the use of the wine!
Merci, Thanks to you all,
I think it’s a real view! Isn’t it?!
