Rain Tern Waterworks, Part 5

The near gatehouse, dam and walkway are coming into focus. Here, I’m using harder HB charcoal pencils to define the doorway, other shapes, shadowed recesses, the walkway’s sides.

I’ve begun cleaning up, filling, evening the mist with graphite pencil and kneaded eraser; the walkway’s right edge is nearly defined, and the mist in the lower basin is smoothing out too. For more on this process, see my article Creating A Misty Moonrise in Graphite and Charcoal.
