ASOD: Nebulae in Oils

Rosette Nebula
Rosette Nebula by Greg Wing (via ASOD)

The Astronomy Sketch of the Day from Monday, February 24, 2014, caught my eye this morning as I perused my various and varied news feeds.  The artist, Greg Wing, used graphite pencil sketch on canvas overlaid with oil paints to achieve this representation of the Rosette Nebula.
