The Monthly Sketch Project - December

A sketch of a 'water fountain' for The Monthly Sketch Project
 
I did this one with Derwent Graphitint pencils, sketching it first then wetting the drawing with water.
Once its all wet you can push the graphite around with your paintbrush, the more you use the more dense the colour.
I did find that it was quite difficult to get some dark darks, but possibly a better quality paper might hold more graphite layers.
This was a good subject to do as it fits nicely in with my previous post about the statues in an old villa.  I think this is some kind of fish?

This is a nice job with the pencils.
