I thought she was very clear and concise in her instructions as to how and what to do when using colored pencils. Anyone who had trouble finding clarity in her book must have been short of a few colored pencils upstairs!
Thanks again, Laurie. There are so few people who give any guidance as far as using pencils go. Most books are out there just showing off photos and have very little instructional value.
The book starts out with a brief explanation of materials, film types, print surfaces, shooting pictures and presenting your finished piece. An introductory how-to hand-tint a photograph is included as well.
The people chapter follows. Here you learn to create realism and give your photo a romantic feel. Coloring both vintage and contemporary photos is covered. Next, the place section covers nature, flowers, architecture and an animal landscape. The final section focuses on advanced techniques and uses more specialty products. You learn techniques for toning, staining, dyeing, and using oil paints. Each of the projects is demonstrated step-by-step. A materials list and color swatches of the pencils used is also included.
I admit the author could have been a bit more detailed about materials and the oil mixture. However, this is a great book overall with very nice, easy-to-follow examples and I believe it is suitable for all levels.
