For graphite portraits I always use the trusted brand of Derwent.  Their Graphite and Onyx series of pencils are in my opinion the best on the market today.

For coloured pencil work I use mainly Faber-Castell Polychromo range of oil based pencils.  I also incorporate Caran D’Ache Luminence and Derwent Coloursoft into my portraits.  The coloured pencils are blended with a liquid solvent.  This is called Zest-it.

All portraits are drawn on Daler-Rowney Graphic Series Smooth Bristol Board 250g/ms.
