Choosing the right Pencil for the job

The Derwent Graphic Range is the only graphite pencil I have used for over 20 years now! Which I think is testament to their consistency in quality and performance. All of my Graphite drawings have been drawn with these superb pencils.

The LightFast Range is the latest range to be released by Derwent and right up there on my list of personal favourites


This is my most used colour pencil for my drawings. With a colour range of 126 different colours, their waxy but firm texture is the perfect match for detail and layering.


As the name suggests - these pencils are soft. They blend extremely well and work brilliantly when drawing over embossed lines. Another firm favourite of mine.


Embossing Tools. When I discovered these it absolutely changed the way I drew fur and whiskers! I simply cannot live without these

I generally use an eraser as an addition to my pencils instead of looking at it as something to remove mistakes. An eraser can be almost as effective at line making as a pencil.
