Product Description

The Original Derwent Colouring Pencil

Originating from the heart of the Lake District, Derwent has been at the forefront of developing quality, innovative fine art materials since 1832. The Derwent Artists range are the original artists pencils. With a selection of 120 colours to choose from they are ideal for drawing any person, animal, object or landscape.

Lay Down Colour Quickly

The Artists range of traditional, large diameter colouring pencils consists of 120 colours with a generous fat colour strip, suitable for laying down vibrant colour quickly for strong lines and bold, expressive drawings. The colour strength can be varied from faint and delicate to bold and intense by increasing or decreasing pressure on the page.

Ideal for Layering and Blending

The pencils slight waxy texture makes them ideal for layering and blending. A selected range of primary and secondary colours can be mixed to create interesting colour build and an infinite range of hues and tints.

Derwent Artists Wooden Box Set of 120 Colouring Pencils

The set includes the full range of 120 Artists colours presented in a high-quality wooden box. Set in a rounded barrel for the quick lay down of colour the pencils are easy to sharpen and break resistant, making them ideal for long periods of use. The pencils are finished in dark green livery with colour dipped ends for easy identification.

Derwent Studio Range

The Derwent Studio range of drawing pencils have an identical core to the Artists pencils with a slimmer hexagonal barrel for more precise, detailed, illustration work. These pencils complement the Artists range and can also offer a useful alternative.

Size: Set of 120 (Wooden Box)
If you have a serious interest in creating masterpieces using pencil crayons then these could well be for you. The sheer range of colours on offer is fantastic but be warned this can be more of a hinderance than a help at times. You need a decent amount of space to spread the trays out which is what I tend to do but this is when it can get a bit tricky as you can easily feel overwhelmed by the 120 colours on offer. I would suggest that unless you really need such an array, save your money and buy a smaller set. The box does look very nice on your desk instead of the tins though :-) Although it's a lot of cash, at it's current price of £84.99 the box is great value but if you haven't tried Derwent pencils before make sure you try some first before spending you're hard earned cash on this set. Also, just a tip - always scribble each colour on a scrap of paper first before you commit it to your drawing as some of the colour indicators are a bit misleading.

Good Pencils, nice assortment of colours, blend well. Quite expensive though & a bit hard for my liking but that's down to personal preference. I'm still a very happy customer and would recommend.

Size: Set of 120 (Wooden Box) Verified Purchase
This box arrived and I was a real big kid opening it. The range of colours were amazing and I could wait to use them. The sea of colours are luscious and you eat to dive in right away.
The pencils are in an absolutly beautiful case and the smell that comes from all the wood is so inviting making you want to draw more than you often should. The 2lift out shelves are great but the one at the bottom is hard to see. The pencils are all anchored in, good in one way but a little bit of work when you want to pick a new colour.
The pencils are a lovely size/thickness to hold. The end colours on each pencil are not that matching with the tips, but in time I will get to know the colours.
Overall it is an expensive investment for this wonderful box of colored pencils and it took a lot of deliberation before I placed the order, but as I am seriously into adult coloring books in the end I did order.
I am happy with a large selection of greens and blues as I truly believe that manufactures of colored pencils should produce larger selections like greens for lots of garden and woodland coloring books alone as well as blues and aqua's for the sea coloring books. This truly a missed avenue as every selection has smaller aray of these colours due to having all the other colours to incorporate. So a woodland green selection and a marine selection would be most welcomed.

.....I want my own box!

However....'I want' doesn't necessarily equate to 'I get'...but...Christmas is coming!

As a lowly amateur, I have tried colouring pencils in all shapes and sizes and I was like a little one in a sweet shop with this super selection on removable trays in a sturdy wooden box...on loan to me for just a week!

Granted it could be on the daunting side for some as there are so many to choose from but there will always be a good reason to have 120 different pencils with infinite possibilities to create more and more colours.

The first Derwent coloured pencils, developed in the 1930s and appropriately the first Derwent pencils I bought. These stalwarts are round-barrelled, feature a wide core and come 120 colours. My box also is the fancy-schmancy wooden box that Derwent do so well. These are wax-based pencils and are great for blending and layering. These are your workhorse pencils. Any complaints? Only minor ones. Sometimes the casings are poor - crumbly varnish, inconsistent livery, and sometimes, just sometimes, the pencils are tricky to sharpen. Use a battery-operated sharpener for less problems. The Magenta is a stunning colour and the range of greens are lovely for botanical work.
