Re: (IAAC) Obj: NGC 7000 (North America nebula, HV-37, LBN47, Sh2-117)...
Well, sorry to continue this thread despite
it's relegation to another forum, but as an Artist myself (Watercolour
Landscapes) I must say that anyone who can so accurately represent the night sky
with pencil and paper as Sue has done is as good an Artist as any Ive seen!!,
the very nature of representational art is to convey an image of what is
actually seen, and in that context it cannot be argued that such work is not
art, I wish I could do half as well!!

Nothing artistic in there.

Sketches/drawings of objects are really better called
impressions becaue the eye-brain work in concert to try to capture
'true view' or even essence of the subject.
have to agree with you. It seems to me one could also argue
portraits are not art either if one followed Lew's logic.
