i am very very new to painting and drawing. i know derwent have always had a good reputation so i bought these pencils to get me started. the pencils are of the highest quality, the colours are amazing, and the "lead" is so soft for blending and highlighting. my pictures are still at the rubbish stage but i enjoy using the pencils so much i don't care. highly recommended for good and not so good artists.

I received these as a gift from my parents for Christmas and have only just got round to testing them out and to say I am pleased is an understatement. They render extremely well and give perfect skin tones, I have drawn many people of different ethnic origins with these pencils and have been complemented on the colours. I will definitely be buying another tin of these when my other ones are finished but ive been using them for a while now and they are still lasting a long time.

I already have the set of 24 Derwent watercolour pencils which are a delight to work with. I purchased this set for portraits and it has all the colours you need to render any skintone.

as i needed more artists stuff, i viewed and bought this one. the quality is excellent, the range of colours are all you would need, due to blending them together, or indeed using just the one. the tin that`s supplied with them is lovely and strong. i would recommend this item. well done to the manufacturer.

I thought with the great reviews and the price that this product would be fantastic but I was very disappointed. The crayon colour is so hard that it doesn't transfer to the paper well and is very, very faint unless you press so hard you bruise the paper.

These were my first watercolour pencils, whilst I'm a newbie artist, I didn't think the colour was that deep when used with water.

Maybe it was just me and my lack of experience though.

These pens dont blend well when using water. The pencil marks are left on the page but with a hardly noticeable colour wash. Would be alright as children's colouring in pencils.

I was really disappointed with these. As a child I remember using watercolour pencils to great effect but these are very weak in comparison.

I could only really use them by running a wet brush around the pencil tip to get a decent amount of colour and even that is very weak. Colouring the page and then applying water does nothing at all.

They're probably only really useful as normal colouring-in pencils but then the resulting colour is very grainy so not exactly a redeeming feature.

For me, a complete waste of money.
