Description

Derwent Artists’ Pencils have a slightly waxy texture which blends beautifully and layers well. 

  • They’re also the perfect complement to Derwent’s Studio pencil range, which have exactly the same waxy texture, in the same 120-colour range, but with a slimmer, hexagonal barrel for more precise drawing.
  • Derwent Artists Pencils are the first colour pencil this prestigious British company ever developed, back in the 1930s, and were previously known as the No. 19 range.
  • Their traditional round barrel and wide core make them perfect when you want to create broad strokes and free, expressive drawing.

Great additions to the Derwent Artists’ Colour Pencil Set:

Cass Art Heavyweight Cartridge Pad

Seawhite Drawing Board

Animal Kingdom

Q&A (8)
Q Can you blend the Derwent coloured pencils with paint brush and water like other pencils such as Caran D'Ache?
A

These are not water soluable pencils but they blend well when you layer shading of different colours

Q Can you blend these pencils with a paint brush and water?
A

These pencils are not water-soluble and cannot be blended with a paint brush and water. However, they will blend beautifully when layering and shading with other colours.

Q How do these differ to the Derwent Studio Pencil range?
A

Derwent’s Studio Pencil range have a slimmer, hexagonal barrel for more precise drawings. Both boast the same 120-colour range.

Q Are these prone to smudging?
A

Like with most pencil works, you can avoid smudging by adding a layer of fixative spray on top of the work once finished. We sell a variety of pencil drawing fixatives. You can find these here. 

 

Q What colours are in this set?
A

Lemon Cadmium, Straw Yellow, Deep Camium, Orange Chrome, Scarlet Lake, Deep Vermilion, Flesh Pink, Rose Pink, Crimson Lake, Magenta, Imperial Purple, Dark Violet, Light Violet, Blue Violet, Ultramarine, Spectrum Blue, Prussian Blue, Kingfisher Blue, Jade Green, Mineral Green, Emerald Green, Grass Green, May Green, Cedar Green, Olive Green, Bronze, Vandyke Brown, Brown Ochre, Raw Sienna, Golden Brown, copper Beech, Terracotta, Ivory Black, Blue Grey, Gunmetal and Chinese White.

Q What are the dimensions of this tin?
A

352mm x 198mm. The tin is 14mm deep.

Q Are these pencils easily blendable?
A

Yes, these pencils have great blending properties. The firm leads used in these pencils makes them perfect for precise drawings. If you would prefer to use a pencil with a softer pencil lead, we would suggest the Derwent Coloursoft Pencils.

Q What shape barrel does this pencil have?
A

This pencil has a round shape barrel.

2nd April 2016 Reviewed by Susan Sorrell I wanted to compare these Derwent Artists' Pencils to my Faber Castell and this was a very good offer to try them out.

I use them for colouring adult colouring books and my own creative art work.

They are not as soft or as blendable as Faber Castell but the two brands work very well together and I am very glad I bought the Derwents because the colours are different enough to compliment the FC I already have.
They are thicker pencils and very comfortable to hold. Lovely addition to my art supplies.

4th March 2016 Reviewed by Elizabeth Igoe Good pencils, although I had imagined them to be slightly easier/more soft (or creamy?) to colour with. For bold colours you have to use them quite hard which left me with an achy hand. Could be user error though.

3rd July 2015 Reviewed by Susan Sorrell One of the best artists quality coloured pencils around - creamy and easy to blend with a lovely range of colours.
I have just turned 60 and have recently become addicted to the pleasures of colouring for stress relief and bought these pencils as a special treat to myself as my confidence and colouring technique have increased. The difference in quality between these artists pencils and the hard, unforgiving coloured pencils I used as a child is astounding and takes colouring into a different enchanted realm. The pleasure of using them has released my inner creativity and I am no longer satisfied with colouring-in someone else's outlines and am making my own drawings. Now I have joined an art class to learn basic drawing and painting techniques. I'm in heaven. Treat yourself and learn to play and create.
