  • DERWENT Sketching Pencils

    Sketching is all about being loose, free and easy and Derwent Sketching pencils couldn’t be easier to use; just 3 simple degrees HB, 2B and 4B, to cover all your drawing needs.


    They have a wide strip so you can quickly rough-out a loose sketch, or capture a passing cloud before it disappears! Once you’ve done that you can sharpen your pencil to a fine point to add the all important detail to your drawing!

  • DERWENT Onyx Pencils

    Feeling moody? Look no further, Derwent Onyx is our blackest graphite pencil, even darker than a 9B!


    Great on its own for drawing really moody pictures or use it with other graphite media like Graphic or Sketching pencils to add dense shade and tone.


    We have created two tones, medium and dark, but it is easy to build up darker shades if you need them by increasing the pressure. The wide strip can be easily sharpened and will hold a fine point, perfect for capturing the detail in drawings!

  • DERWENT Graphik Line Painter Pens

    Graphik Line Painters are a fine line paint pen that gives immense depth of colour, even on dark backgrounds. A fusion of fine lines and opaque paint make these unusual pens a must for illustrators, artists and designers. The free-flowing water based paint is highly pigmented, allowing for layers of contrasting colours, paint runs and splashes, fine lines and colour blending. Whilst wet, the paint is water-soluble, once dry the paint is waterproof and permanent (on porous surfaces such as paper and untreated wood).


    Warning the ink is permanent once dry. If you do get it on your clothing keep the area wet until you can wash it properly (not guaranteed, but it's the best bet!).

    Fluid opaque paint | Super Japan nib | Permanent water based paint | 20 colours | Available individually
