Sinus Iridum

This is my first attempt at drawing on black paper with white pencil. I chose the majestic Sinus Iridum as first subject, my favourite lunar formation: as you could see from my older sketches, I drew it many times.

The peaks illuminated by the first sunlight of the lunar day are just beautiful, and the curvature of our satellite is well visible as the basalt floor gradually fades into darkness.

Hope you have enjoyed the sketch, if you liked it follow this blog for more, or visit the italian version for lots of sketches!
