Hope to be better at drawing with the help of the book.

I decided to try creating my own picture instead of just copying images from Hammond's book.

When I was a child my very favorite gift was a big box of Crayola Crayons (back then the big box had only 64 colors) and a package of paper. Crayons make me happy to this day. The first thing I do after I get myself a new box of crayons (the big big box of 120) is take a big whiff of the waxy smell (love it) and then I organize the colors. Amberly asked me why Crayola didn't just organize the colors for me. Personally, I'm glad they don't. It would take so much of the fun out of a new box.

When FSBMedia contacted me and asked if I would read and review Amazing Crayon Drawings with Lee Hammond, I was thrilled and of course I agreed. I figured that my seven year old daughter would love it. She's our resident artist. And crayons, as we all know, are for kids. Right?

Wrong.

When the book arrived last week I was AMAZED. Hammond's use of crayons is truly amazing (thus the title of the book). Her work is stunning and realistic and it is really hard to believe that her only tools were crayons. I was totally inspired by her creations. I ran to the store and bought a new box of crayons and some good sketch paper and have been "coloring" ever since.

I'm not really an artist but I've been following Hammond's tutorials on shading. I've created A LOT of spheres this week. Before I got the good paper, I copied Hammond's beach sunset. Fun! Fun! Fun! Plus, since my girls are always begging me to color with them, we shared some good quality mother/daughter time too.

While they're not generally considered a serious art medium, one really can create stunning and professional looking art with crayons. Crayons, as far as art supplies go, are fairly inexpensive.

Amazing is an understatement of what this book can teach you. I had serious doubts that anyone could reproduce the art work that this book contains and especially with plain old crayons! The book guides you through color, paper selection and ideas. I think the most important thing I learned from this is that you have to choose the correct paper. Don't skimp when it comes to paper since that made all of the difference in the world.

There is an easy to follow step by step guide to grid your paper to make the drawing easier. Another important step is a sharpener. I never thought that something so simple can turn a simple crayon into a means of actually creating something! I bought my crayons and paper at a discount store so that cost was under $10 and I even found the metal sharpener that made the huge difference. This is the most fun I have had in a long time and my son is even interested in trying it! Bonus!

Okay, so I had a dream one night that a friend and I had gone to Target and I said "oh wait one minute, I'm doing a portrait, I need some crayons" and I grab a box of Crayola. This really cracked me up and I woke up giggling. Hardly a few days later, I get an email from Amazon about this book and I think of the dream and go "yeah right, like THAT'S happening!" I figured it was about a great way to embrace pricey wax pastels that can make you feel young again cause it might feel like a crayon in your hand. It's okay, Caran D'ache already has a piece of my soul (oil pencils). I even email about what type of wax pastel but don't get a reply. Finally, a preview became available and I searched it for which type of brand to get and on the last page found the Crayola part. Yep, I was shocked too but delighted and immediately got the book and the Crayola crayon telescoping tower that Amazon recommended with the book. My portraits are anywhere from 30-120 hours each and I will still use my Pablos but I am having a LOT of fun with this book and the drawing and I plan to fill endless sketchbooks with these and possibly branch out into my professional work. Just don't tell my clients. ;)

Amazing Crayon Drawing with Lee Hammond is truly amazing! I was in complete awe studying every illustration in this book. Lee Hammond is extraordinary talented yet humble enough to share her techniques and what works best for her.

In this book best-selling author Lee Hammond demonstrates how to create realistic drawings using wax crayons. Magnificent drawings I might add. With Hammond's easy step-by-step drawing guide, you will learn how to create lifelike landscapes, animals, people, flowers and many more.

You will discover how to create brilliant color and burnishing techniques, along with simple blending and layering skills. Each colorful page is very fascinating to look at and simple to comprehend. Lee obviously took her time to break up each demonstration in an easy to follow format.

Hammond touches base on graphing and how to use a grid to achieve that true-to-life masterwork. The plastic grid in the back of the book is a big plus and very helpful.

Amazing Crayon Drawing with Lee Hammond is an awesome learning tool for those who yearn to create vivid imagery. Regardless of any age I can assure you, you will find this book captivating and very inspirational. It's unbelievable the masterpieces you can create with a simple medium such as a crayon.

Crayons, they're not just for kids anymore.

Remarkable! Two big thumbs up.
