Aside from Alexander's amazing work (!) I found some of Greg Wing's pictures quite compelling (astropaintings.weebly.com). It's not their accuracy that is amazing but the way he uses observation and photography as a starting point for creative work. It's nothing I'd ever consider but his work sparked some interesting discussions in other forums. Certainly raised the issue of what a sketch meant to those doing them: a record of an event, seeing better, a joy in drawing, creative endeavor, building a personal catalogue etc. Right now I'm just out to see better and take time looking at one thing, to counterbalance the desire to finish a list (which is currently a Dunlop 100 list). Curious as to why others sketch?
