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.

I followed many of the advice from this book and indeed, my drawing has improved a lot! I have bought several drawing books, and this is the one I refer to the most. If you want to hone your coloured pencil drawing skills, you have to get it!

If you own only one book on working in colored pencil, this is the book! It contains everything that you need to know about materials, and the demonstrations are comprehensive and well done! A must have for colored pencil artists and those thinking of working in the medium.

This is for people who learn by DOing, & who have the guts to work-though an exercise whose details have been decided by someone else, who's already solved & shorn-away all the wasteful/noneffective ways of learning a good progression...

In other words, IF you've got it in you to simply do what she's showing you to do, you will gain great skill fast.

Period.

If you "can't" ( that means won't, btw ), then bash around however you want, & you'll still be nowhere as good as you would have been by the end of this book, 1/2 year later...

Also get The 4th Definitive Edition of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain ( Betty Edwards )

Mastering Composition ( Ian Roberts )

and Creative Authenticity ( Ian Roberts )

and Prismacolor Mixed Media set will get you much of the way there...

DO see in YouTube if this is the right medium for you ( look up Robin Williams Color Pencil for a stupendous photo-realistic example ),
& do see if the wax pencils are better for you than the oil pencils, before buying a full set,
you will also need Odorless Mineral Spirits, "waterpen" brushes for the solvent, Stonehenge paper, etc...
