Derwent Artbar Sets

Featuring a beautiful, creamy consistency, these triangular bars of solid, highly pigmented color offer artists unlimited creative potential.

Derwent Artbars feel luxuriously smooth as they release consistently rich, deep pigment. The wax-based bars are also completely watersoluble and perfect for expressive pieces that include different marks and textures. Suitable for large, dramatic pieces containing lively marks and shapes, Artbars also adapt well to adding finer detail because of their triangular shape.

Derwent understands the importance of different tones, and the Artbar color range reflects that, with colors arranged in four tonal groups: Brights, Pales, Earths, and Darks.

Brights provide the best base color for a subject, handy for vivid flowers and exciting abstract work. Pales are lighter shades that bring out highlights, perfect for portraits. Earths offer the mid-tones of an image, ideal for natural landscapes. Darks reveal the important shadow tones, great for mixing even more tints. Each Artbar displays a symbol denoting its tonal group for easy reference.

Dry or wet, Artbar opens up a world of expressive mark-making and rich opaque color.

Artbars measure 3-¾" long, with triangular edges that are ¼" long.
