Derwent Artists' Pencils

The first colour pencil Derwent ever developed, and still one of the most popular on the market. Artists have a traditional, round wooden barrel and a large diameter, break-resistant colour strip. Perfect for broad strokes and free, expressive drawing, Artists’ slightly waxy texture is ideal for multiple layering and blending to produce an infinite spectrum of subtly different hues and tints. Available in a fantastic range of 120 colours, Artists has stood the test of time.

Derwent Pastel Pencils

All the creativity of pastel with the convenience and control of a pencil! The soft, powdery texture produces a velvety smooth finish, ideal for mixing and blending. For laying down large areas of colour, try Derwent Pastel Blocks.

 Derwent Coloursoft Pencils

The softest of pencils but in an amazingly strong and vibrant range of colours. The velvety softness of the strip releases rich, dense colour at a stroke and is perfect for mixing and blending. Despite its soft texture, Coloursoft sharpens to a fine point and works equally well for detailed illustrations or bold, contemporary still-life drawings and portraiture.

 Derwent Graphitint Pencils

If you’d like to introduce some colour to your graphite drawings, this pencil does it all! Used dry, Graphitint provides just a hint of colour but adding water literally transforms the tint into rich, vibrant colour. Graphitint will appeal to artists looking for something a little bit different but with all the familiar qualities of their favourite graphite pencils.

Derwent Inktense

Pen and ink offers strong, intense colour combined with a translucent effect. Now you can enjoy these distinctive qualities in an easy to use pencil. The colours can be blended together with a slightly wetted paintbrush while applying an overall light wash creates a vivid, ink-like translucency. Once dry, this wash is permanent so Inktense is ideal for silk painting and other craft projects.

Derwent Drawing Pencils 

This is drawing at its most natural, both in the exquisite colour range and the creative potential of this unique and rewarding pencil. Drawing has an extra wide, creamy textured strip which produces a beautifully soft, velvety finish. It is the perfect medium for wildlife and nature studies, natural portraiture and dreamy, evocative landscapes. A wide selection of traditional sepia tones together with soft neutral greys, greens, blues and creams.
