Conte Sepia Pencils

drawing pencil sepiaThe colour of the Conté à Paris “Sepia” pencil is reminiscent of burnt umber. This pencil shades easily. With a sharpened lead, you achieve an accurate and delicate finish. With a half-worn lead, the finish becomes more opaque as the pressure exerted on the pencil increases.

Recommended for: 
– Rough sketches
– Nudes : enables the most contrasted parts of the body to be shaded
– Portraits : emphasises and highlights the value of a face
– Landscapes : intantly gives the colour of a tree trunk or the facade of a house.

Use: it can be used sparingly on its own but it can be blended with the Sanguine, White, Charcoal or Pierre Noire pencils for a more complex finish.
