Derwent introduces new Charcoal Set!

Charcoal is probably one of the world’s oldest art materials and it is incredibly versatile. It can be used for bold sweeping lines or precise detailed images depending on the type of charcoal you use. Charcoal is also particularly good if you are learning about shading and lighting techniques.

Charcoal is probably one of the world’s oldest art materials and it is incredibly versatile. It can be used for bold sweeping lines or precise detailed images depending on the type of charcoal you use. Charcoal is also particularly good if you are learning about shading and lighting techniques.

To help you experiment with this exciting medium Derwent have introduced a new Charcoal set featuring a comprehensive range of charcoal media which can be used for a wide range of drawings from dramatic intense landscapes to more detailed and intimate life studies.

The new Charcoal set contains 4 different forms of charcoal from pencils and compressed blocks to chunky willow and fine sticks together with a Paper Stump which is ideal for smudging and blending this dusty media.

The Derwent Charcoal Pencil offers all the drama of traditional charcoal with more control and less mess perfect for dark intense lines. The two Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils, Glowing Embers and White, do all this and more by bringing a hint of colour to your work, allowing you to create rich deep tones and natural highlights.

The three Compressed Charcoal Blocks, light, medium and dark that feature in the set are ideal for larger drawings as they can be used on their side to create broad sweeping strokes. The Natural Chunky Willow Charcoal is perfect for making bold fluid lines while the two Natural Vine Charcoal Sticks are ideal for quick responsive mark making.
