Have you ever tried water mixable graphite? It’s so much fun to play with. Great for travel when you can’t take your paint box with you – grab a pencil case or brush roll, a pad of paper or some boards, a bottle of water and go make some really creative drawing/paintings!

This artwork was created by Ida Kendall,  using cretacolor water mixable graphite and inktense pencils on gessobord, with water and velvetouch brushes

Derwent Inktense pencils are colored pencils with a twist – add water and they pop vivid colors right before your eyes! Combine the softness of colored pencil with vivid inky colors. We also have Graphitint pencils in stock, for a more subtle color taste.

“Velvetouch™ is the finest blend of synthetic I’ve used. Each brush shape is a unique blend filament diameters to ensure it performs beautifully for its intended purpose.”

Featured brush shape: The Velvetouch Long Round

by Willow Wolfe: Featured Brush, Painting Techniques

The round brush is a traditional shape which includes spotters, short liners, script liners, the basic round and Princeton’s new long round. The Velvetouch Long Rounds were developed over several years by the expert brush makers at Princeton and rigorously tested by Willow Wolfe and a team of artists for performance, durability and quality. It is a premium blend of luxury synthetic, tapered to provide precision and fine detail, while the full body provides a controlled release of color.

The difference between a long round and a traditional round is the shape of the belly, the gradual taper and the length of the hair.

Fine artist, Jamie Dougherty displays the incredible color holding capacity and release of a long round in this sample swatch art from our free project, Yellow Blossoms. The long round creates both beautiful washes and fine lines with ease. One incredible long round…for a world of colorful applications.
