Hailing from the heart of the Lake District, Derwent is a quintessential UK brand and produces some of the best pencils around for artists. Derwent has been crafting pencils since 1832 and this knowledge gives them the upper hand in crafting excellent colour pencils. Derwent Procolour is part of Derwent’s professional range of coloured pencils. Procolour combines the best of the Artists and Coloursoft ranges, featuring the strong point of Artists with the laydown of Coloursoft – giving artists long-lasting precision with a smooth laydown. The unique formulation within each Procolour pencil promises a clean finish every time. Professional artists have praised the range for its strong point, vibrant and smooth colours, colour-mixing and layering abilities and bright tones on a wide range of artists’ paper.
The sturdy design of the pencil is comfortable and the sleek matte-grey body with a reference colour name and number on the shaft makes for easy sorting. At the end of the pencil is a lovely wedge of colour for easy reference. Procolour pencils also blend beautifully with a range of mediums and artists accessories, including blending pens and paper stumps.
