Pencil Study of Caravaggio's "Taking of Christ"

 www.goughpaint.blogspot.com

Here is a sketch I have done of detail from Caravaggio's "the taking of Christ".
I have found the darks values of the original quite difficult to achieve with pencil.
I think I may have to look for anothe medium to compliment the Derwent pencils
to achieve this.
