Elegant Options for Sketching and Artwork

Elegant Options for Sketching and Artwork

When it comes to sketching out ideas, illustration and colouring ideas, a good quality pencil is a must have for every kind of artist. Here at Homecolours we love to see gorgeously made pieces of stationary that make a lovely addition to any studio. But along with pencils, other pieces such as rulers and erasers are also well worth considering.

Thankfully some of our favourite design brands are well placed to provide brilliantly made stationary products ideal for all budding artists. Take a look at the following to fuel some inspiration at the drawing desk!

High-quality coloured pencils offer a lovely way to get the creative juices flowing. When they are able to be neatly stored and presented, they make a fine addition to the art room.

The above Printworks 24 Colour Pencils, Classic offer a fantastic collection of items ideal for colouring. Contained within an attractively styled sturdy snap close tin, the 24 pencils are superbly crafted from premium lead and linden wood. With every colour of the spectrum on odder to use and sketch with, the set makes a great gift for any keen artist.

 

A very different but no less handy set of pencil is offered with the Workplace Shenanigans Pencil Set by Designworks Ink.
Each one of the graphite pencils is detailed with an amusing slogan made in gold typography. Contained within a stylish and sophisticated envelope with a secure string and button closure, the collection of pencils is ideal for the office.

Keeping all of those pencils and stationary in place on a desk is artistically done with the above Yama Cup by Ferm Living.
Taking its inspiration from the wild organic landscape, the decorative cup makes a stunning addition to the artist’s equipment. Ideal for containing everything needed on a desk, the multi-functional cup offers attractive style however used.

Artists, designers and students are also well advised to have a ruler close by. The above steel Pantone Ruler 30cm is available in a wide collection of colours and brings a great combination of practicality and style to the desk.

With clear measurement markings, the ruler is ideal for getting the spaces and dimensions exactly right.

 

Pantone also brings its distinctive styling and pure colour to the essential eraser. Perfect to have to hand for pencil mistakes or temporary markings, the Pantone Eraser makes work a little easier. Another stylish way to add some extra character to the pencil case and desk, the eraser is a great option for all artists.
