I haven't seen this sculpture I don't think?! Is it new?! You've managed to make it look metallic Veronika which is very hard to do! Did you use some wash or watercolour over the pencil?

Hi Tracy. Thanks. I am sure you know this sculpture. It is 'The Sphere Within Sphere' outside the Library. I draw it also last year as i am fascinated by the structure and it is rotating too (which was a challenege coz the toursits were mucking with it). . I just have used gold colour pencil and graphite (which is metalic almost itself). And then I just played around with thetones and shades. Easy peasy ;-)

Great sketch Veronika, especially as it was a moving object. Lovely photo of the sculpture in the link!
