This is one of two Space Art colour pastel sketches I did in 1992. Like the other sketch, which is titled ‘Spaceship Approach’ and can be located in the Space Art section of the Pulldown Menu, this one is enhanced with a slight Oil Effect in PhotoStudio, imparting a faint but distinct red outline or shading to parts of the image; although because this image has a linear and contour structure not so amenable to the effect, it is actually much less noticeable on this rendering.
I masked off the signature while applying the effect as the action can warp and corrupt the lettering and make it unreadable.
I have set a slideshow of alternatively tinted versions beneath the featured image. They are listed as follows:
Green and Blue
Gold and Green
Electric Blue and Violet
Flame and Emerald
