Working with a chunky block of solid graphite is hugely satisfying, encouraging you to create quick, dramatic sketches and atmospheric line drawings. Natural Graphite has a slightly dusty quality, so it blends very easily and you can even add a little water for the subtlest wash effects. As a block, Natural Graphite has impressive covering power and can be used on its side for a solid sweep of tone. It comes in three versatile grades, soft, medium and hard.
These sticks produce an even colour of grey, which is great for drawing on, then erasing highlights. Just what wanted Kate Bull (Shepperton, United Kingdom) on 26 May 2013
These sticks are lovely to use, versatile, good paper coverage and good quality. Susan Wilcock (Thurso, United Kingdom) on 21 Apr 2014
