The humble graphite pencil is the most versatile and well-known option. Keep one nearby to take down measurements on the go or sketch a detailed illustration when inspiration strikes.

Coloured pencils and pastel pencils are popular with all ages. Both are ideal for beginners to experiment with blending and shading, as they are easy to control and make minimal mess.

Sketching pencils are the best drawing pencils for creating shapes, intricate lines and tracing. Keep the thin graphite core sharpened for ultimate fine-line precision. Take your sketching one step further with charcoal pencils to add depth to deep blacks and softness to light grey hues.
