Product Description

Review

Sorg, Eileen. Drawing Made Easy: Colored Pencil. Walter Foster. 2009. c.64p. illus. ISBN 978-1-60058-151-9. pap. $9.95. ART INSTRUCTIONSorg, a young award-winning artist, creates precise drawings that capture the extreme realism and character of her subjects. Hers is a brief manual for beginners. For intermediate students, Kullberg, who runs a popular colored pencil web site, reviews in her book examples of mediocre work, analyses problems (like Chiclet teeth ), and transforms each into a stronger image. Advanced artists will revel in Nickelsen s "Colored Pencil Bible," filled with inspired, luminous techniques. -- "Library Journal, July 2009""

This is an excellent book for a beginner with 21 varied step by step projects to try. The first few pages are devoted to techniques, tools and materials and colour basics etc. You don't even have to be able to draw as outline drawings are provided for you to trace.

If you are looking for a basic guide, this might be useful. It is brief with step-by-step instructions to reproduce images from the book. The author uses the inevitable fruit subjects and too many birds and animals for my taste; there is virtually no instruction for backgrounds for the images. This book is okay, but my advice is to spend a bit more and buy something more comprehensive and imaginative which would be more likely to generate an enduring interest in this fascinating medium.

A little disappointed how small it was and that some of the examples seemed to be of weird subjects but it does clearly seem to show the basics and be quite informative

For beginners, lots of information on setting up and some really nice tutorials, with original drawing to copy and list of colours to use.
