This sketch is of the 220km diameter crater Clavius, which is near the lunar South Pole. The orientation of this sketch is is with North to the bottom, so the crater Rutherford is at the top left, and Porter is at the bottom left.

The sketch was done from a photo taken in Adelaide, South Australia, on 2012-05-30, when the moon was 67% illuminated. The telescope was a 150mm SCT.

Medium is charcoal on white paper.

    Thank you Javin. I like to sketch craters when there are bold shadows, so waited for this phase before tackling this subject.
