This is drawing at its most natural, both in the exquisite colour range and the creative potential of this unique and rewarding pencil. Drawing has an extra wide, creamy textured strip which produces a beautifully soft, velvety finish. It is the perfect medium for wildlife and nature studies, natural portraiture and dreamy, evocative landscapes. Drawing is available in 24 subtle shades, including a wide selection of traditional sepia tones together with soft neutral greys, greens, blues and creams.

If possible, get the large set of 24 pencils. This is one of the most useful collections of pencils on the market. The muted, sophisticated greens and blues cannot be found anywhere else. The browns and reds are bright, rich, and luscious. These pencils are ideal for rendering animals, landscapes, and even portraits. Try them when you are drawing buildings, too. The Chinese White pencil is one of the best available, rivaling the Caran D'ache Luminance white. You will not be disappointed with the quality of these pencils. The laydown is very smooth, with excellent coverage and blendability. This is one of Derwent's best products. Amanda Adkisson (College Station, USA) on 21 Mar 2018
The pencils are very smooth and creamy. They are perfect for portraits and animals. However, be careful with pressure just in case they break. Elitsa Kostova (Ilford, United Kingdom) on 30 Apr 2020
These are the softest pencil that I have used and are great for coverage. I use them with harder pencils like Derwent Studio for more detailed work and find that they work as a team very well. Both are available from Ken Bromley and delivery is of course excellent. Les Wilson (Pontefract, United Kingdom) on 3 Oct 2014
