Introduction to Astronomical Sketching Video

I edited this video a couple months ago and finally got around to uploading. It features a step-by-step demo of M81/82 being sketched with graphite. This also seemed like a good way to demonstrate the use of a blending stump and kneaded eraser, since words and still images just don’t seem to be descriptive enough.

  1. Jeremy, I often refer back to the book Astronomical Sketching for guidance and insight but it’s wonderful to see a video of a master at work!
    Thanks for the Tutorial.

  2. As someone with NO experience drawing and a desire to learn how to sketch what I observe at the eyepiece I absolutely loved the video. It is quite amazing what can be learned by watching and listening to an expert.
    Well done!
