From Library Journal
Kullberg is a born artist, self-taught and highly accomplished. In her first book, she proves to be a born teacher as well. She thoroughly and engagingly explores the details of the tools and techniques necessary for every element of creating portraits. Colored pencil is a medium that requires little money, no setup, no cleanup, and no health concernsAjust as much hard work and talent as any other medium. With her fresh enthusiasm, Kullberg makes the work a pleasure. Collections that have Lee Hammond's similar Drawing Portraits in Colored Pencil from Photographs (North Light, 1997) may want to add this as well. In choosing between the two, Kullberg's personal approach edges out Hammond.
