Getting the hang of watercolours can be tricky, but Derwent's Academy range has the perfect tools for getting you started and improving your skills. Whether you want pencils, paints or markers, we have products for you.

Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencils
Watercolour pencils are great for drawing out your painting, and then use a wet brush to dissolve the rich pigments to create a fluid painting. Ideal for traditional watercolour work. Made with natural wood barrels and quality water-soluble pigments, these pencils can be used dry as a colour pencil or brush on a little water to create a wonderful watercolour painting. They blend and dissolve easily to create a wide range of additional shades. Derwent Academy pencils are also easy to sharpen and are break resistant.

Derwent Academy Watersoluble Paints and Markers
If pencils aren’t quite your thing, then we also have a range of acrylic and watercolour paints and water-soluble markers available that can be used dry or with water depending on the effect you want.
