4.0 out of 5 stars Colored Pencil Bible Nov. 13 2010
Format:Paperback
If you are unsure whether colored pencils are a legitimate fine art medium then the Colored Pencil Painting Bible is for you. I gained and learned a lot from this book.
The illustrations are beautiful and the text nice and clear and Alyona doesn't skimp at all, on sharing her original and innovative techniques.
