Derwent Pastel pencils have a unique highly pigmented fine chalk texture which creates a beautiful laydown of soft colour and are easy to blend; 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.
“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
