Here our award-winning US artist Jesse Lane's thoughts on our Lightfast range. He designed the awe-inspiring eye on our Lightfast packaging!
"These lightfast pencils are Derwent's first oil-based pencils. The firmness of the lead is a good balance between soft and hard. It can make a fine point without breaking immediately, while still maintaining a bit of the smoothness of a creamy, soft pencil...What I love about the Lightfast
colour selection: there are
colours that are almost, but not quite, black. I find this super helpful when creating subjects fading in and out of shadow." Jesse Lane
