For those of our readers who may find art supply stores baffling in their complex offerings, a British reader of our blog, Olivier Jennes, has generously allowed us to publish the link to his detailed and valuable research on pencils. This blog article by Jennes provides succinct descriptions and evaluations of a variety of pencil brands and manufacturers. This information can save you endless time and lots of money in seeking the brand of pencil that is right for you, and, conversely avoiding buying the wrong brand.
Olivier's review of pencils is based on feedback from artists around the world, and I personally agree with his descriptions of the pencils with which I am familiar.
