    A STUNNER, you`ve done it proud. Well done, Des
  4. Depends, if the sky`s dark enough it should not be a problem. I Live in a rural location and in the summer its visible from the zenith towards the south,and, when the street lights go out......it much easier to follow down. Des

    First sketch - M45

    A great start as m45 is not easy... I use black drawing card from The Range,and they do a nice selection of white pencils and the staff in our Range are very helpful. Or try an artist shop, saves inverting in photoshop. Des
