Derwent XL Charcoal Blocks set
The Derwent XL Charcoal Blocks are exactly that large blocks of charcoal. Compared to the graphite blocks they are more fragile and go down into paper rougher than the graphite. The black block is just awesome. It is just a big block of compressed charcoal with a deep and rich charcoal black. It will be awesome for laying down really dark areas. And that’s all for my initial impressions.
One thing I want to say is that I love it when my art supplies come in tins.
