Summary

"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. Each lesson features color swatches that match the colors of different pencil brands, as well as the type of drawing paper and other supplies that will work best for the artwork. Winters expertly covers such techniques as shading and blending and discusses a wealth of other topics, including the importance of light, composition, drawing solid objects in 3-D, color theory, how to draw textures and fabric, how to create symmetrical shapes, and many other aspects of colored pencil drawing.
