Sorg, Eileen. Drawing Made Easy: Colored Pencil. Walter Foster. 2009. c.64p. illus. ISBN 978-1-60058-151-9. pap. $9.95. ART INSTRUCTION

Sorg, a young award-winning artist, creates precise drawings that capture the extreme realism and character of her subjects. Hers is a brief manual for beginners. For intermediate students, Kullberg, who runs a popular colored pencil web site, reviews in her book examples of mediocre work, analyses problems (like “Chiclet teeth”), and transforms each into a stronger image. Advanced artists will revel in Nickelsen’s Colored Pencil Bible, filled with inspired, luminous techniques. -- Library Journal , July 2009

Many colored pencil books share two features: involved exercises copying full fledged works by the author, and interminable layers of color, often provided without explanation. This book does neither, and benefits from the omissions. Inside are short projects, usually consisting of a single figure on a white background. The figures are often adorable--a tree frog, a kitten, a turtle, and so on. The layering used to produce the colors is also stripped down, rarely consisting of more than three colors. This approach has the twin advantage of offering easily digestible chunks that can be produced in a single sitting, a big advantage for those of us who are extremely busy but like to unwind with art, and simple enough color schemes that the underlying idea becomes transferable to other projects.

I take this book on airplanes with me, along with a colored pencil roll and a small sketchbook. It's a wonderful way to pass the time on a flight and I've even managed to trade some of the resulting drawings for things like fishing lessons while in flight.

I love this book and have produced some really nice artwork following her step by step instructions. I .like how she gives all the colors up front and then tells you where to start.

These Walter Foster books are very good for beginner color pencil lessons. I have several and have been working my way through them. They give very good directions and have sketches for each picture that can be enlarged and copies to start you off ready to use the color. I don't have all the colors they recommend, especially the greys, but if can probably pick them up individually. I use Derwent pencils, Artist and Colorsoft. These books may be using Prismacolor or other brand; so at the beginning of each lesson I match the colors listed with my pencils' color grids and select the closest color I have to the one listed. I guess the good thing about that is that I have to really look at the colors and I am getting better at judging the warm/cool aspect and color matching.

If you are just starting to work with colored pencils or are thinking about working with them, this is the perfect book for an introduction on how to work with the medium. It doesn't cover basic drawing principles so it's not the right book to learn to draw but I would recommend it if you are hoping to learn how to work colored pencils for the results you want to get from them. Nice techniques, good instruction.

The pages are large and easy to view but there aren't very many of them. I was disappointed. I'd like to see a book like this with at least 30 pages of instruction.

Love this book. I wanted a book that did not use solvents. There's many fun designs to try. I will be using this for weeks.
