The expanded range previously had less than 4 pencils in the red, orange, green, and blue-violet colour families. These colours have expanded out to now have at least 4 pencils in each colour wheel colour family. For your knowledge, it’s advisable to draw up your own colour chart so that you can get to know the actual colours of your pencils. You will then be able to see how your pencil performs on the papers that you use for your drawings. I have also completed a review of these beautiful Caran D'ache Luminance pencils on my YouTube channelwhere I have conducted a few test's which are better witnessed, so if you are interested follow the link and watch the video.


Luminance 6901 artist’s pencils, specifically designed by Caran d’Ache in its Geneva Manufacture with colour image professionals in mind, reaffirm the high quality standards of the Maison. Its delicate texture, along with the vibrancy of the many recently developed shades, open up exciting new vistas in the realms of overlaying, mixed techniques and gradation and the new leads are designed for works intended for exhibition, collection and museum purposes. " Using a soft, wax based pencil is ideal for artists like me who like to layer extensively. A softer pencil allows for smoother layers and numerous applications for those who like to create highly detailed art or like smooth transitions. Although the Luminance pencils may not keep their point as long to create very fine lines, like the harder oil-based brands like the Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, keeping them sharp whilst using certain techniques will help you achieve the fine detail regardless.

You need to have access to the colours where you are – hopefully, you’ll be there with internet access and your mobile, tablet or laptop. Interactive Luminance colour chart

For animal artists, the Luminance range provides a wide range of neutral tones. Incorporating a wide range of browns and greys which animal artists use regularly, they provide a useful selection of 'barely there' colour tints such as Buff Titanium (801) and Silver grey (002), through to the deeper tones like Sepia (407) and Payne's grey (508).
