Derwent Pencils

IT’S A NEW ART SUPPLY! They really aren’t NEW. They are just ones I’ve never really tried before. I emailed Derwent earlier in the summer asking for some colored pencil samples. They sent some my way and here is what I thought: WONDERFUL! Their rep sent me several different ones to work with. I used all of them today except the watercolor. They sent me a variety including ones that are a bit less expensive for student use. I, of course, loved, what I’m sure are the MOST EXPENSIVE ONES: INKTENSE. They are so lovely, smooth and just as they describe themselves–intense. They color just jumps on the paper once you have touched it. So nice.

So, I looked into their price. Just as I suspected, they are much better, in my opinion, compared to the Prismacolors we have been using, but, of course, not at a better price. They are a bit more, but their quality seriously is a bit more.

Who knows what the art teacher will do! I’m sure I will go with the less expensive, but perhaps get a set just for those students who are really serious with their works –like the ones working on VASE (visual arts scholastic event) pieces. We will see!

These were my two favorite of the day!

Here is my colored pencil creation. What do you see? It is of the animal kingdom, but everyone I’ve asked so far guesses it as a different one. That is what art is all about though, you see? YOU SEE what YOU want to SEE! What do you see?
