Derwent colouring pencils
Not all colouring pencils are created equal, and it’s a rare artist who is happy with only a handful of colours. Among our Derwent pencils selection you’ll find a wide range of pencils for different tasks and purposes.
Some Derwent pencils are absolute art essentials: trusty workhorses that any artist will need when they approach a fresh canvas brimming with ideas. The soft, creamy texture of Derwent drawing pencils are great for sketching out a nature scene. Collections of black and white pencils bring a rich contrast of deep shadows and bright highlights to your palette, breathing life into portraits and bringing out the detail in your illustration. Derwent’s Precolour range adds an explosion of bright, vibrant hues to your drawings with strong points that make layering colours easy.
Specialist Derwent pencils
As well as these essentials, we have a selection of more specialised Derwent colouring pencils that add interesting effects to your illustration. Cover your canvas with the sine of chrome with Derwent metallic pencils or lower the temperature of your drawing with a selection of cool pastel pencil tones. Derwent’s watercolour pencils can be mixed with water to create smooth, blended areas - perfect for sketching out ponds, oceans and other water-heavy nature scenes.
With so many different kinds of artistic pencils, the only consistency is their terrific quality; all Derwent pencils are made to the highest standard. Their strong cores keep their points and won’t snap when subjected to the slightest pressure.
Derwent tin collections
An artist is always on the move, searching for objects and locations that will be the basis for their next project. When inspiration hits, you won’t want to be left without your colouring pencils. That’s where the Derwent tin collections come in.
Ideal for beginners and professionals alike, each tin comes with a selection of brilliant Derwent colouring pencils based around a single theme, grouped together in a storage tin that doubles as a handy carrying case. Some of these tins also include helpful accessories that will make your artistic life a little easier. Pipettes let you squeeze just the right amount of water onto your canvas, while a robust canvas wrap makes transporting your Derwent pencils even easier.
