Heart-to-Art: Sketchbook Supplies

Heart-to-Art: Sketchbook Supplies


For this post, I thought it’d be nice if I could show you the tools I used in my sketchbooks. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to post another sketchbook tour, so I added some pictures from my current sketchbooks for you guys to see below as well. Anyway, here’s a list of (ridiculously costly) art supplies that I like to use:

1. Faber-Castell Goldfaber Sketching Pencils

These pencils are my go-to for drawing.

All three of the portraits below were drawn using the Faber-Castell sketch pencils pictured above. The portrait on the far right was drawn from a live figure-drawing session and is in one of my current sketchbooks.

You basically use watercolor pencils as regular color pencils. I color in my drawings and then go over them with a brush dipped in water.

4. Prismacolor Color Pencils / Derwent Coloursoft Pencils
