Welcome to dickblick
Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. These pencils are available in strong, vibrant colors which work beautifully on their own or can be mixed together to create rich, subtle tones. The pure, clean colors are perfect for bold expressive drawings, including fashion illustration, landscapes, greeting cards, and more.
Inktense pencils can be used dry for rich, intense color or washed out with a little water to create a vivid translucent effect. Once dry, the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Pencils are pre-sharpened.

Great for figure drawing and for traveling
By Jean Louise Finch
from Evanston, IL
I just tried these for the first time in my figure drawing class. They are great for quick sketches using pencil and wash technique. I only had a few basic earth tones, but I really liked the fact that some of the colors, such as Sienna, initially draw a dark line, but tint out to a lighter, warmer tone. The pencils also give you an extra dark, intense line when working on wet paper. I tried them on Canson watercolor paper and then I tried the pencils on Yupo. Just drawing with them on Yupo was an amazing experience - the pencils went on the Yupo really smoothly and tinted out really beautifully. I am thinking of buying a set of these in more colors to take to Mexico.

Intense beautifully functional
from Vero beach, fl
Just discovered these. I'm like a kid with a new box of crayons. Would love a larger container full of selections.
Easy to work with, professional results
from Corpus Christi TX
I love these pencils! I am a very busy mom and a Professional artist, and in order for me to get any work done I have to take any time I get, I spend a lot of time in the car during practices and school, so I use this time to create. The inktense pencils and blocks are perfect for me because I can paint and draw at the same time without the mess or hassle of other mediums, and it's portable so I can work from my car. Thank you inktense!

Derwent Inktense Single Pencils
from Ventura, CA
Derwent Inktense Pencils are loaded with color, handle well, and can be used wet or dry. I use them with my acrylic painting for added control over edges. Single pencils are reasonably priced. Love them.
By Tucson Carol
from Tucson AZ
Color is easy to control with these ink based pencils and when you add water, the colors are rich and luminous. Good selection of colors available in the set I purchased, and colors layer and blend so the possibilities are endless. Perfect for various art projects or other creative endeavors.
Love these pencils!
from Friday Harbor, WA
I just received these colored pencils. So much superior to regular colored pencils. Strong, vibrant colors. I'm excited about the ability to do water washes that become permanent.
from Durham, CT
These pencils are AMAZING..I have been using water soluble pencils and aquarelles for many years but even though these may look the same they are completely different in performance. Rich, intense color can be obtained with little effort. I plan on much experimentation with both the pencils and the blocks which are like a water color pan on steriods! If you love water media don't wait...try Inktense.
