Welcome to dickblick
These professional-quality, water-soluble pencils offer the artist the freedom to switch from drawing to painting in an instant, with no change in tools. Use them to shade on dry paper, then quickly wash over with brush and water to get a blending effect.
Use wetted paper for intensified colors with softened edges, or try wetting the pencil first for rich, textured lines. Each pencil is pre-sharpened and has a 3.4 mm diameter color strip.

Comments about Derwent Watercolor Pencils:
I was a neophyte to watercolor, but someone advised me to try the Derwent pencils because they were a very high quality color, had a great variety in the colors for shading and wouldn't break the bank. I stamp on watercolor paper with a pigment-based ink and work the water color pencils and follow up with a blending brush and it looks fantastic! I am very pleased with all that I am able to do and I am now adventurous with what I try my hand to and before, I was just too afraid!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

DERWENT DELIVERS AGAIN!
from Menifee, CA
I've used the Derwent's inktense line before and was super impressed with those- I didn't think their watercolor pencils could top those but I was WRONG. These may not be super bold like the inktense but they are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous colors! I am so happy that I bought a few to experiment; now to save up to buy a set :)I want to try doing an undersketch with these and see how it goes with traditional watercolors over it.Thanks Blick for always carrying such great items!I've never won a #sweepstakes before, but I hope my luck will change one day!

Splendid and Fun
from Irvine, CA
I am new in the art world, and new to watercolors pencils. What glorious color and ease of use for me that these pencils have. I am excited to come home to my small projects, and to use the pencils. Thank you to Blick.
Very nice Pencil Product!
from Chicago, IL
I recently decided to test the Derwent Watercolour Pencils as I'm looking for lightfast Pinks and Purples. I was pleasantly surprised at this brand for dry work too. While it has a chalky feel to it, it performs well and blends nicely in dry form with both oil based and wax based brands. I will be adding more to my sets!
Wasn't perfect but customer service was superb!
from Newport, OR
All was fine upon opening the package but, when I went to use the white pencil on a picture pink was the color I got. I tried sharpening to no avail...there was a streak of pink throughout the middle of the white. I called Blick customer service and was immediately assisted by a very nice woman. They are sending me a new white to replace the pink.
Beautiful assortment of colors
from Dallas Oregon
enjoy working with them
