My box of pencils have arrived and I'm delighted with them, the box is solid wood with a sliding lid and nice velvet holders to stop the pencils rattling about. I did this drawing of a few vegetables before I cooked them for dinner. The pencils are great washed with water and then I went over the top when the drawing was dry to thicken up the colours. They work well on this tinted paper, covering it very well with strong pigment.
I always make a colour chart of new pencils to test the colours and try out different mixes.
Here's my certificate for completing the course.
