What's with "artistic talent" ? I mean, any "astro-sketcher" is only COPYING
what they see, like a photocopier or a scanner. Nothing artistic in there.
I say that because when I wanted to try astro-sketching, I similarly thought
I had no artistic talent. So I started looking at people's pictures and
sketched some. According to family / friends, I was pretty good, but I could
never draw someone from my own imagination, which would have been, I
believe, art. Finally, I never made any astronomy sketch. Maybe some later
day. (But then again, maybe I'd need to go observing more...)
