Derwent Lightfast 100-per-cent lightfast oil-based pencils

Award-winning artist Judith Selcuk specialises in coloured pencil fine art. Here she takes a look at the newly available colours in Derwent’s range of oil-based coloured pencils and demonstrates their painterly qualities with a painting of orchids

The Illumination of Innocence, 117 x165in (297 x420cm)
