Derwent Art Prize
Created by Jake Spicer using Charcoal Pencils
Sketching & Drawing
Good pencil drawings start with a good graphite pencil!
Derwent Sketching pencils couldn’t be easier to use; just 3 simple degrees HB, 2B and 4B, to cover all your drawing needs.
The Derwent Watersoluble Sketching Pencil has a wide strip which is great for quick drawings. Add water to gently dissolve the graphite for line and wash sketches and watch your art take on a new, softer feel!
Brilliant for creating big dramatic pictures. Blending them couldn’t be easier, and you’ve got 3 grades to choose from. If that wasn’t enough, they’re naturally water-soluble too!
Pure water-soluble graphite in a stick! Use it like a pencil or peel off the wrapper to break it into chunks, then just add water and watch the graphite dissolve into softness!
Our blackest graphite pencil, even darker than a 9B! Great on its own for creating really moody pictures or use with other graphite media to add dense shade and tone.
Graphitint is a unique range of tinted graphite that combines the drama and creativity of pencil drawings with a hint of soft, subtle colour.
Tinted Charcoal Pencils
Tinted Charcoal offers the dramatic beauty of charcoal pencils with a gentle hint of colour!
Often used for life studies charcoal is a traditional art material but we've encased it in wood to make a Charcoal pencil, giving you greater control over your drawings while keeping all those charcoal effects that you love!
A chunky block of pure charcoal. Use with our other charcoal products or try it on its own for wide sweeping strokes using its side or the end for finer lines.
XL Graphite Blocks
Big blocks and bigger possibilities; subtle blending, fine lines and deep tonal work. They're water-soluble too and come in 6 dense shades from Olive Green to Burnt and Raw Umber, perfect for bold landscapes.
XL Charcoal Blocks
Charcoal just got bigger and more beautiful! Chunky XL blocks in 6 muted shades from Sanguine and Violet to Sepia and Ochre. Naturally water-soluble use them on a damp surface and release lots of colour quickly.
