Derwent Water Soluble Sketching Pencils 6 Pack is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet striking. My first time using any type of watercolour pencils and I am thoroughly impressed. This set consists of 2 of each HB, 4B and 8B. These just so happen to be my favourite grades of graphite pencils so that was the first win for me before I even started. They are easy to use and the different gradients are bold and clearly defined with their marks. I’ve found several techniques for using these and tried them for a still life drawing of a church. Absolutely perfect for a beginner and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely try these out! I've gone through a whole tin of these already and I just had to get them again! They have become a staple of my Illustration toolkit and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to create pencil illustrations or incorporate them into watercolour pieces. They're really versatile, you can use them as regular graphite pencils but you can also get really smooth and flowy effects with just a small amount of water. The only downside in my opinion is that there are two of each grade, it would be nice to have 6 different pencil grades, but that's me being nitpicky. Try these out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nicely presented sketching companion nicely presented sketching companion, however not sure why there are duplicates of each shade as opposed to a greater range of shades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful sketching aid. I tried these Derwent pencils out on holiday in Suffolk. I found I could easily capture the shifting skies by adding water to my drawings. There are two of each grade in the pack of six so my partner tried them out as well. He is keen to purchase a tin himself. The included pencil sharpener might have worked better but the pencils were a good addition to my outdoor sketching kit.
