The Derwent Inktense Pencils come in a range of 71 colours, plus a non-soluble outliner which allows you to draw outlines that are permanent. The colours can be blended together with a slightly wetted paintbrush while applying an overall light wash creates a vivid, ink-like translucency.
This range of pencils are incredibly versatile and can be used to create a diverse range of art from Japanese Manga to vibrant silk painting; traditional watercolours to stunning botanical illustrations.

I thought the pencils were great lovely and smooth great colour Jackie McLain (Bangor, United Kingdom) on 16 Mar 2012
I love Inktense as I enjoy the different ways they can be used. A very light application results in a beautiful wash and by using pressure an intense more opaque look. I reflected on what they remind me of and came to the conclusion of Acryla gouache due to the matt appearance and they don't move once dry (unless you put them on so thick that the pigment is too concentrated to dissolve properly).
