Derwent Pastel Pencils are very important for any artist to add to their art collection set, they offer the artist all the benefits of high quality expressive hard pastel pencils for the professional or armature to use. These professional high quality pencils are ideal for using as an individual medium or for blending in combination with various pastel work.
Derwent Pastel Pencils have been specially created to develop and provide only the highest degree of purity and accuracy for the artist. They have a soft powdery texture wick provides a original smooth and velvet finish to any art work.
Derwent pastel pencils are pre-shaped to fit any form of medium which still offers the artist the traditional qualities of conventional pastels. I have found that you can also use these pencils to blend with other types of graphite pencils as well this can give your art work a whole new dimension.
For the use of authentic pastel drawings with a quick and easy color layout gives the artist a wide range of choices to choose from. Derwent developed the square shaped pastels and also the smooth and firm texture means ideally you can use the ends, sides or edges to produce a medium with both broad and fine lines.
Although they do not produce as much dust as soft pastels, the effect is just as if not more beautiful and a lot more manageable. Derwent offers Pastels in a range of 36 vibrant colors, plus they have a unique Blender which allows the artist to easily blend the colors without affecting the finished work.
