2014 04 15 Total Lunar Eclipse
Early this morning, we were treated to a total lunar eclipse in most of North America. I spent a good chunk of the evening preparing my sketch kit to record the event through a series of sketches to be animated. I also set up the Canon 60D DSLR equipped with a 70-300mm zoom lens, set at 300mm.
The sketches are left smoldering in a folder until I can bare too look at them – what a new experience for me to work at such a fast pace with color pastels! In the mean time, here is the resulting animation of the photo sequence. My friend, Stephanie Hansen was my observing buddy and snapped the first half of the eclipse for me while I sketched.
