Derwent United States - Watersoluble Pastel Pencils


Water-Soluble Pastel Pencils

by Martin Aveling

Fine detail, minimum dust, easy blending - Derwent Pastel pencils have a unique, highly pigmented, fine chalk texture, which creates a beautiful laydown of soft colour and are easy to blend. Pastel pencils are easier to control and less messy than traditional blocks, ideal for creating detailed drawings and sketches. These pencils can be used dry or with water to create light washes, if portraiture and life studies are more your thing.

Available in a range of 72 colours with minimal dusting.

“Derwent Pastel pencils are ideal for both loose and detailed work – the soft nature of the pastel strip makes blending easy, allowing me to tackle nature’s extensive colour palette with added confidence. Being able to use the same pencil for detail ensures consistency across my artwork, and a realism which satisfies my perfectionist tendencies! In my humble opinion they are second to none for drawing wildlife in particular.” Martin Aveling
