workhorse of a sketching pencil
from Edge of the continent, Oregon
Comments about Derwent Water Soluble Sketching Pencils:
Once I sharpened this guy he's been a solid workhorse for sketching. Using on Arches watercolor paper pencils tend to dull quickly and lines thicken. This has less tendency to do that without creating grooves in the soft paper that affect how watercolor paint flows and moves. I will buy this again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

water soluble sketching pencils
from Arlington, WA
I use them for life drawing sessions and with a damp brush am able to shade with it. The effect is fantastic.

These pencils blend very smoothly when water is applied. I love the combination of dry media mixed with wet media. It brings a pencil drawing into the wet media look, and the pencils do so beautifully.
I think these pencils are the best .
They are so smooth, they glide on the paper with no annoying catchy bits. They work equally well wet or dry. I absolutely love them. I will continue to buy them. A great value!

Second try - happy now
This review is a follow up to my other review. I decided to buy another set of these pencils to give them one more chance. This time, I found that the graphite dissolves nicely with water. When I first tried these pencils, I must have used some old stock or defective pencils, or maybe Derwent improved their product because these new ones behave much better than the first ones I tried.

I do not recommend these pencils simply because I find the graphite does not dissolve well when overbrushed with water. There are other water soluble graphite pencils out there that perform much better for better results, such as Prismacolor.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use two pencils in this catagory in addition to two others of seperate brands, which I take with me everywhere in my travels. I have found HB wash excellent for layout applications. I wish Derwent would consider not sharpening their pencils though.
