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.

Derwent "drawing" pencils work like a pastel pencil but with a softer waxy feel. The colours are ideal for portait and nature drawings. The small (6 piece) set contains your usual (sanguine)red/ (sepia & chocolate)browns/ black and white for quick drawings or portraits, the 24 piece set also has a few blues and greens, which makes them great for detailed (pet and human) portraits and even landscapes. Oh! These pencils work just as well on black paper. Cat Maessen (Kerkrade, Netherlands) on 24 Aug 2013
