Derwent Drawing is a soft, creamy textured drawing pencil, ideal for wildlife drawings, nature studies and portraiture. First introduced in 1986 in a limited selection of six earthy colours, the range has now been extended by popular demand to an extensive palette of 24 natural shades. The new colour range includes a number of soft greens, greys, blues and creams as well as an increased choice of traditional sepia tones. Derwent Drawing has a unique, waxy consistency which makes it easy to apply and produces a smooth, velvety finish on the paper. The soft, extra wide 5mm strip is ideal for blending and encourages loose, expressive drawings with subtle tonal transitions. The newly extended colour range lends itself to all kinds of nature studies, including landscapes, seascapes and wildlife drawings. The wide choice of sepia tones is also ideal for subtle, traditional portraiture in the style of the old masters. Beautifully presented in a glossy brown stained barrel with double dipped, colour coded end, Derwent Drawing is available in a blister pack of six colours or in tins of 12 or 24, assorted shades.
