Knotted magnetic field lines give rise to powerful eruptions and form the intricate sunspots and arching prominences that make our nearest star one of the most exciting, yet challenging, astronomical objects to sketch. Facilitated by the availability of affordable dedicated solar telescopes and filters, the Sun has become an increasingly popular target amongst astronomical sketchers.
The use of narrowband solar filters provides a wonderful opportunity to capture views of the Sun that have, until recently, been largely inaccessible. You'll discover easy to follow, step-by-step instructions geared toward your specific interests, be it technical sketching and contributing to science, personal study, or even fun solar outreach activities that help children learn through art. By using Solar Sketching as a reference, drawing the Sun has never been easier. Erika volunteered her time as moderator for Cloudy Nights Telescope Review, particularly the sketching and solar forums, where she was awarded the accolade of "Star Contributor.
She was part of the Canadian International Year of Astronomy team that helped with promotion and public outreach. You'll discover easy to follow, step-by-step instructions geared toward your specific interests, be it technical sketching and contributing to science, personal study, or even fun solar outreach activities that help children learn through art. By using Solar Sketching as a reference, drawing the Sun has never been easier. All the different mediums used are explained in a step-by-step tutorial style, that are very easy to follow and there are hundreds of examples of sketches of the Sun.

Industry Reviews "This book is all about sketching the Sun, and it is marvelous. Introduction to Solar Observing and Sketching.
The tutorials are lively and by individual named artists, some extra to the four authors. It is fascinating to compare their different sketching styles and approaches. They use ordinary graphite pencil, charcoals, dry or oil pastels, pens and specialised pencils of all types.

These scribe on white, black and coloured papers. The text explains exactly how to use each medium.
tax-marusa.com/order/sawuhexax/ There are no paints because there is no time for them. The Sun changes fast.
Each sketch must take no more than a few minutes or even less if there are flares or eruptive prominences. Are sketches made so quickly at all accurate? The book really needs to talk about accuracy. It needs some side-by-side comparisons of drawings and near-simultaneous images.

Amateur equipment can generate superb H-alpha and white light images and many are available on the Internet. Frequent comparison with them is a key to confident work and continued technique improvement.

Carefully drawn sketches can in fact be surprisingly accurate. The book should highlight that. There is some very light-touch solar physics. We learn how to submit observations, sketch transits and eclipses, make animations and conduct solar outreach activities.
