My Very Favorite Colored Pencil Book...
Comments about The New Colored Pencil:
It's true...when this book came out in 2014, I had finally found THE colored pencil book I'd been waiting so long for someone to write.It was important to me that the artist/author have first hand experience with Colored Pencils, Watercolor Pencils, and Wax Pastels and Combining Colored Drawing Media. I wanted lots of ideas for surfaces/grounds to try knowing ahead of time that they work well with this medium. She not only did that, but she certainly held nothing back in her arsenal of ideas. She shares things she has learned without holding back crucial information. I've personally read the book through several times front to back, but one of it's best uses is as a reference book. It's that good! I often refer back to it when I am ready to try a new surface. There is so much information packed into every page, you can't skip anything.I really appreciate that this colored pencil artist does not use OMS or highly toxic solvents. Sometimes certain conditions (such as being on oxygen) make using OMS a very dangerous combination...and that's what colored pencil is...a non-toxic medium. She describes very clearly why she doesn't use certain solvents...as well as what she uses to get that well sought after smooth painterly effect. But more than that, it's clear that her mind is constantly engaged to stretch the limits of what can be done with colored pencils, making this book a must read!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The New Colored Pencil, book by Kristy Ann Kutch.
from Woodinville, WA
I had been looking for a book with more information about working with water color pencils. This beautiful new book that I found on line in your, "Blick", web sight really fit the bill! It arrived quickly at my front door. Blick also in closed a catalog as well as a Holiday sales book. I have learned so many interesting things about getting better use out of my water color pencils. It was so easy to order from Blick I will sertinly use them more ! After browsing through the wonderful catalog ....I was able to find a special paper I have been looking everywhere for! Very excited to now know where to find it!!! Thank you Blick for caring so many wonderful art materials! Also for making it so convenient to buy on line from you.Thank you, Mrs. glass
