Rima Ariadaeus and Crater Agrippa

This is my first attempt at sketching with charcoal pencils. It's very different from graphite pencil, so there's a lot of technique for me to learn. A lot more messy, but I like the way it can be smudged for background, and the black is just so much blacker than graphite.

This is Rima Ariadaeus at the top, with Agrippa the large crater to the lower left and Ritter on the middle far right. I sketched from an image I took last night with my C6 SCT.

The sketch took about 2 1/2 hours to complete. I only used the "hard" and "soft" pencils. So far I'm enjoying my "quiet time" sketching. This may become a Sunday evening routine.
