This review is from: The Ultimate Guide To Colored Pencil: Over 35 step-by-step demonstrations for both traditional and watercolor pencils (Hardcover-spiral)
I am a total novice to colored pencil art, and have been amazed at the beauty and versatility of this medium. Silly me! I had NO IDEA what can be accomplished with colored pencils!

So, being a bit OCD, I have been creating a library of "how to" books. Some are overwhelming, albeit gorgeous. Others are simplistic and not very helpful.

This book is like Goldilocks'...."just right"!! Besides helpful info on brands and types of colored pencils, there is info on paper types, erasers, color range charts (18 pages!!) divided by brands, plus 'how to's' and What mistakes to avoid. The skills of burnishing, color lifting, painting, under painting, layering, etc. are made simple to understand and practice.

And the art projects and step-by-step demos are more complete than any others I have seen. The finished projects are so beautiful!!

I am very excited with this book, and feel empowered. What more could anyone ask?
