The Derwent Watersoluble Sketching Pencil has a wide strip which is great for quick drawings. Add water to gently dissolve the graphite for line and wash sketches and watch your art take on a new, softer feel! Created in three easy to use wash strengths; light, medium and dark which will help you bring great depth to your sketches.
Nothing beats graphite for drama and impact, and this pencil creates all the dramatic effects you could wish for, and more. Used dry, the soft, wide strip is perfect for loose, free sketches and bold line drawings but add water and you’ll bring a totally new dimension to your work. Watch the graphite gently dissolve into subtle tones, adding a softness and charm to any style of drawing. Available in three versatile degrees, it opens up an exciting new world of line and wash sketching.
In this video clip professional artist Fiona Peart demonstrates the unique qualities of the Water-soluble sketching pencil. In her drawing Fiona demonstrates various techniques including shading, using a waterbrush and perspective.
