“I prefer the degrees of hardness 6B and 8B because they have a soft stroke and enable sketchy drawing.”



“This pencil offers the whole range needed for personal expression – from sketchy, loose play of the hand to modulated lines and dark, heavy areas.”


Brigitte Doege prefers the soft versions of the Castell 9000 Jumbo. Her sketchy drawings refl ect moments of the artist’s fancy in the depiction which is particularly appealing due to its characteristic liveliness.
