Description

"The Winters book is clearly a great addition to a teaching library on colored pencil. It thoroughly covers what's needed from planning and design to execution as well as technical tips. Beginners on their own should find it very helpful." -- Melissa Miller Nece, CPSA, CPX, colored pencil artist and instructor
Experienced artists looking to master a new medium will relish this comprehensive guide to using colored pencils by Veronica Winters, author of How to Color Like an Artist. Step-by-step projects with photos and directions illustrate the many details that bring a simple composition to brilliant life, offering readers a comprehensive overview of colored pencil techniques.
A brief introduction covers necessary materials and explains the book's overall approach, and subsequent chapters address specific techniques.
