How to Draw the Moon – Live

On my live drawing show today, I show and talk about drawing the moon. 

I’ll be using pencil, pen and ink and watercolour, so have materials to hand and follow along. 

My young friend, Helena of https://www.youtube.com/Helena’sAstrophotography is helping me with some images and even went out to make a movie specially for me! See it here and make sure your subscribe to her channel! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vnx6blBfsJE

If you live in the UK you can see Helena on CBBC the Dengineers programme when they built her observatory in the Garden. Meet some folk from Wigtown too! https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09glkq2/the-dengineers-series-3-3-observatory-den
