I bought some Derwent Drawing pencils yesterday and also did a colour chart of all the pencils I have (swipe to the next image if interested)! Here are some quick Derwent Drawing impressions: ✏️ This line is wax-based and is all about muted, earthy tones. It only has 24 colours and I bought all the local shop had, more than half the line. All the colours have the highest possible lightfastness of Blue Wool Scale 8, despite one that is 7 (still impressive!). Derwent has another high-quality line of pencils called "Lightfast" which are, in fact, a bit less lightfast than these :-) 🎨 The vendor's web site markets Drawing as "fur and feather" pencils. I 'd say the colours are challenging to use as your only set, even if you only draw natural subjects, so add other pencils for brighter colours. I use Derwent Lightfast, Caran'd'ache Luminance and occasionally Polychromos – check out my colour chart. 🖼️ Derwent Drawing are quite soft but I still managed to sharpen them to a nice point. Despite the "creamy" feeling and some occasional crumbling, they are quite robust and allow for layering. They don't feel "dirty" on paper and making smooth gradients is easy. Smudging is not a problem either (apply some burnisher on top if you use thick, thick layers). They seem to mix well with other brands I have but I need to put them to a test in a "real" drawing. ⭐ My first impression is that Drawing could be a nice addition to your pencil palette if you are into earthy colours. My favourites so far are Pale Cedar, Smoke Blue and Solway Blue. I'm also happy to answer your questions regarding these pencils, and I hope this short review was helpful! . . . #colouredpencil#colouredpencils#coloredpencil#coloredpencils#derwent#derwentlightfast#derwentdrawing#derwentdrawingpencils#carandacheluminance#fabercastellpolychromos#naturalhistoryillustration#botanicalart#botanicalillustration#coloredpencildrawing#review#ботаническаяиллюстрация#цветныекарандаши#farbstiftzeichnung

Busy with my next design. I've always wanted to do the Passion flower, and when walking around trying to find inspiration for my next botannical, I was lucky enough to strike gold - a Passion flower plant in full bloom with loads of fruit. The strong passion fruit scent that hits you when you cut open a ripe fruit is just magical.

The long-tailed weasel (Mustela frenata), also known as the bridled weasel or big stoat, is a species of mustelid distributed from southern Canada throughout all the United States and Mexico, southward through all of Central America and into northern South America. It is distinct from the short-tailed weasel, also known as a "stoat", a close relation which originated in Eurasia and crossed into North America some half million years ago. . . . . #weasel#miniature#papercut#paperart#sculpture#paperbird#stoat#albino#americanwildlife#weasels#naturalhistorymuseum#artcurator#whiteweasel#weaselsofinstagram#naturalhistoryillustration#artistofinstagram#animalsofinstagram#animalartist#artoftheday#animalart#nvillustration#etsy#365feathersproject

Red-backed Kingfisher This was a fun one to draw! Going for speed and simplicity rather than detail on a bird that’s actually quite complex was a really interesting exercise. . It’s been far too long since I’ve seen this species - confined mainly to Australia’s interior, my first encounter with one was in a friend’s backyard in Alice Springs. Since then I’ve seen them in other areas of the Northern Territory and Alice Springs, but being a coast-dweller (for the moment) sightings have been few and far between. Here’s hoping I’ll get back out west soon! #kingfisher#art#artist#artwork#illustration#drawing#draw#naturalhistoryillustration#naturalhistory#scientificillustration#digitalart#digitalillustration#bird#exhibition#gallery#wacom#madewithwacom#artdiscover#artshub#artistofinstagram#birdsofinstagram#julianteh

Bunya study Graphite drawing - detail - wip . #drawing#graphite#bunya#araucariabidwillii#bushfood#bushtucker#botanicalillustralion#naturalhistoryillustration#australianflora . . March marks the end of the Bunya nut season. These ancient trees tower high above all those around them, and from miles around their unmistakable shape can be seen dotted along the hillsides. They hold historical and cultural significance for Indigenous Australians. There is a lady who lives nearby, she's a wildlife carer. Bunya Pines grow on her property and when the cones fall, she collects them, places them in a basket beside her front gate, with an honesty box attached to the fence. Passersby pay five dollars for a cone and she uses the money to fund her work, saving sick and injured koalas. We eat the nuts during the summer months with family and friends, their starchy texture when fully ripe tastes very much like chestnuts. This drawing has possibly been the most difficult to date, but now it's time to open this prehistoric pod and start drawing some more.

Confuciusornis, with the two long tail feathers of the male, bears a striking resemblance to China's other famous bird—the phoenix or fenghuang. Two types of melanin pigments have been recovered from fossils of Confusciusornis, revealing the bird's colors in areas of whites, blacks, grays, and rusts. The fenghuang bears the five sacred colors of China—white, black, red, yellow, and teal. It was a fun and a different kind of challenge to find a plausible color arrangement that fit the mythology, the science, and the visual aesthetics of the piece. #paleoart I'll be making an appearance with my paper sculptures at the paleontology symposium this weekend hosted by the Western Interior Paleontological Society (fondly known by its members as WIPS.)

When working on those plates, I start by doing some literature research in bird guides, to have a list of the main features that I need to show clearly, and of the little unnoticeable details that are still very important. I then gather some photo references to help me sketch the sexes and ages needed. And I trace the sketch on my watercolour paper, ready for painting!
