Derwent


Derwent has had a passion for producing the finest quality pencils since it's formation in 1832. This commitment to excellence and reputation for innovation is displayed perfectly in the Derwent range of fine art media. From the popular Graphic, Artists, Pastel and Watercolour ranges to the innovative Graphitint, Aquatone and Tinted Charcoal ranges, and not forgetting the vibrant Inktense and silky smooth Artbar, Derwent fine art media have something for every artist.

Derwent Procolour Pencils

Derwent Procolour PencilsCombining the smooth, easy laydown of a Coloursoft pencil but retaining the strong point and harder core of an Artist pencil,  the Derwent Procolour has been designed to provide a combination of these two popular pencils. A wax based core allows the Procolour to glide like oil whilst remaining clean, blendable with a non-waxy feel. The highly pigmented cores have a unique formulation that ensure the point remains strong and sharp for intricate work. 

Derwent Artists Colour Pencils
