How to Create Artistically at Home

Producing sketches and drawings is a lovely way to stay occupied in the home. Brilliant as a time passing activity, creative pursuits such as these are a positive way to keep enjoyable focus. 

Here at Homecolours we feel that tapping into an artistic impulse is of benefit to everyone, whatever age you are. Many of us tend to give up on drawing and sketching once we reach a certain age. This certainly doesn’t need to be the case. Leisurely and relaxed drawing and sketching offers a great way to relax and stay in tune with our imaginations. 

The following designer products provide a wonderful way of bringing creative ideas into the world. 

  

The above 12 Colour Pencils, Neon from Printworks ensures a bright spectrum of colour for your next creation. Beautifully crafted and stylishly presented, the 12 artistic tools are ideal for sketching in style. 

Each pencil is marvellously produced with a thick and strong core that means the pencils will last for a long time. All encased within the smart tin, the retro inspired look of the set stays true to the appealing look of Printworks’s artistic products.
