Most of this drawing was done in charcoal, but I used graphite for the rocks and the water in the waterfall. Because graphite is shiney, it does a good job of portraying the wetness of the rocks. I used very hard graphite for the waterfall water and the bubbles at the bottom of the falls because they are so delicate. I did have an issue with the leaves of the tree. At first, it didn't look right because I was trying to draw the background around the leaves, unintentionally leaving a white space around them. To fix the situation, I filled in the background first, then used my electric eraser to remove the spaces for the leaves, then drew in those spaces with my pencils to get the right values.
