The informative Ten Top Tips sheets are free to download from www.pencils.co.uk, the home of Derwent fine art pencils. Under Expert Tips you will find sheets for all Derwent’s fine art media from the latest Artbar and Inktense blocks to the iconic Graphic pencil and the traditional Artists colour pencil.
Leading pencil artists have each divulged their Ten Top Tips for achieving a perfect picture with their favourite Derwent media. Discover how Glyn Macey breathes on his Derwent Artbar to soften the surface making it easier to blend. Landscape artist David Bellamy recommends you explore the potential of Derwent Charcoal Pencils before you start work by scribbling on smooth cartridge paper and then blending with your finger or a paper stump to see what interesting results you can achieve. Susan Christopher-Coulsen, the botanical artist who uses Derwent Studio Pencils advises you to ‘invest in a good sharpener’ and Graham Brace who drew the Venetian Gondola scene for the Derwent Watercolour Pencil tin suggests ‘creating a dry and wet shade chart to aid your choice of colour’.
