colour sketches of jupiter

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With the huge dust storm on Mars, I have turned to Jupiter to indulge my passion for colour sketches. I submit a few recent examples, but make no claims for scientific accuracy. Hopefully there may still be time for Mars before it fades into obscurity!   Best wishes   Chris.S1000014.thumb.JPG.1f0586b41d6f3712ad353eeaedecf736.JPG

Outstanding sketches Chris. It's not an easy task creating an accurate colour rendition of Jupiter, but the colours in you're sketches are perfect.

Superb!

Fantastic sketches Chris. They look like watercolours! Interesting that you only needed x99 on the last one, just goes to show you don't need to go that high to get the detail.👍

Excellent work Chris.  As many have said, your colours are wonderful. Particularly the way you have caught what I call the 'rustyness' of the NEB and also the SEB to a lesser extent.  Well done indeed Chris 👍

Those are some good sketches.  About how long did they take you to draw?

Thanks Beocat,  not too long actually, possible about one hour, once you have got the main features in the right place it is fairly easy.  Chris.

Hi  there,  thanks for your comments, they were done with a set of ancient water soluble pencils, circa 1970's. The original sketches were much smaller in size than the images posted, and in my opinion looked rather better, but unfortunately due to my incompetence with computers and web sites, I was unable to reduce them to the appropriate size.   Chris.
