Three Craters

This drawing done on Saturday 25th August shows a chain of three prominent craters: Ptolomaeus, Arzachel and Alphonsus. Arzachel is the topmost and (with a diameter of 100 km) smallest of the craters in the above image, Alphonsus is the middle one having a diameter of 121 km. With 158 km, the crater Ptolomaeus is the biggest of the craters visible in this drawing.
Soft pastel and charcoal on black paper.
Alex gave me a lesson prior to attempting the drawing. I wasn't too fussed about my effort until I saw it in daylight and now I'm quite impressed with myself.
Thanks Alex for you patience and guidance.
