Responding to popular demand, Derwent expanded its initial range of six earthy colors, first introduced in 1986, into a glorious palette of 24 subtle shades. These include soft greens, blues, grays, and creams plus a wider choice of traditional sepia tones, making them ideal for a wide range of subjects.
Derwent Drawing Pencils are 8 mm in diameter with soft, thick, round leads that have a creamy consistency, making it easy to apply and produce a rich, velvety finish on the paper. The soft, extra wide 5mm strip is ideal for blending and encourages loose, expressive drawings with subtle tonal transitions. Colors can be quickly laid down in wide to thin applications. Pencils are pre-sharpened.
These pencils bring color to life — from sweeping landscapes and seascapes to detailed, vibrant wildlife drawings, nature studies, and portraiture.
