Comments about Colored Pencil Painting Bible:
Our Colored Pencil Club of about 200 people in The Villages, FL, are eager to take lessons. However, when the classes fill up, we suggest those who are waiting to purchase this book to learn a few basics and beyond. The step by step procedures are tops. The results these beginners achieve are amazing, and they are eager to take lessons to learn even more.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this book again.
from Louisville, KY
This book has tons of tips for drawing realistic glass, flames, ice, etc, but I was a bit disappointed that there was no information covering drawing portraits. However, I'm still very glad I purchased the book.

Excellent Resource for Colored Pencils
from Cary, NC
I recently started working with colored pencils and have found "Colored Pencil Painting Bible" an excellent book. The book covers the basics of colored pencils, including the different types of pencils and papers you can use, as well as, other tools you will need. There is a chapter on composition and, more importantly, the basics of color theory particularly as it relates to colored pencils. Mixing colors in colored pencils is different than with other mediums since the mixing is done right on the paper. The chapter on Mastering Essential Techniques is excellent and explains in detail how to apply colored pencils. The chapter on Creating Textures and Surfaces contains examples of just about any surface you will encounter. The final chapter has several step-by-step demonstrations which I found easy to follow and very informative.
