The first sketch is always special.

I only started sketching with pencil on paper this year, my skills are average, but it has improved my observational skills.

You may find by sketching that your observational skill sharpens and you see more as you observe.

Keep it up and keep sharing.

Very nice first sketch Rajesh. Star clusters are not the easiest of objects to draw, but you have made a fine job.

Congratulation for your first nice sketch! I think the Beehive was a great choice to start with also. I recognise the cluster when I compare your sketch to my memory image, which is great.
