Good pencil drawings start with a good graphite pencil. With Derwent Graphic pencils you’ve got a wide choice of degrees from the popular HB pencil, to the fine and crisp 9H and soft and smudgy 9B. So whether you're doing fine detailed illustrations or adding shading and texture to your drawing we’ve got the right pencil for you!
This is where good drawing starts. Whatever your drawing style or media preference, you’ll need some traditional, high quality graphite pencils – and you won’t find a better range than Derwent Graphic. This high quality pencil is produced in a fantastic choice of 20 degrees, from a crisp, non-scratchy 9H to a soft, smudgy 9B. The hexagonal barrel is easy to hold and the pencil sharpens to a good point to cover all your drawing and sketching needs. All the degrees are available individually or in specially selected sets.
