Eclipse with a Friend

Sketch of two friends watching the Eclipse together by Sarah Sullivan

Eclipse with a Friend

Today’s eclipse in San Diego was far from the path of totality. It got a little dim and we had fun with our box viewers and sunglasses, but the eclipse pretty much overlooked us. This sketch is more of what I wish we had experienced than what actually happened here. My goal was to convey some of the awe and wonderment that so many people shared over the eclipse today. The two figures are based on sketches I made last summer. 

I wanted to make the sun far above the girls and so I used both sides of a Moleskine sketchbook.  The sketch is made with gouache and measures 5 X 18 inches. The image below is a closeup of the two friends.
