    I absolutely love art books and this one didn't disappoint! Not only did it give an easy to follow tutorial, the author even included a chapter about which pencils to use. The bright colors and beautiful artwork we're very inspiring. Thanks for this amazing win, Goodreads! I absolutely love art books and this one didn't disappoint!

    There were some good things in this book, like homework assignments, using a certain amount of colored pencils to create different colors, and the work of other artists. But, I have found other colored pencil books that have been more informative: "The New Colored Pencil" by Kristy Ann Kutch, "The Colored Pencil Painting Bible", by Alyona Nickelsen, and "Masterful Color", by Arlene Steinberg. All of these books go deeper into technique and application.
