Overview

Portraits not only capture a likeness, but offer for generations to come a glimpse into the subject's life. Sounds like quite a challenge. But with Ann Kullberg's help, it's not as difficult as you might think to create lifelike colored pencil portraits.



Using her own beautiful portraiture for instruction and inspiration, Kullberg walks you through the process step by step--from basic information about materials and techniques to two demonstrations that show how complete portraits come together from beginning to end.



You'll learn how to:

- choose the right tools and master basic techniques

- compose a portrait--examples show right and wrong ways to do it

- use light to create mood in your portraits
  • create a range of rich, believable skin tones

    - paint the face--step-by-steps of eyes, mouth, nose and ears make it easy

    - paint realistic-looking clothing--step-by-step demos show you how to paint denim, velvet and other fabrics



    You'll also find Kullberg's secrets for making your portrait come alive, along with 17 mini-demos that make it easy to paint realistic features, hair and clothing. Inside is everything you need to get started, as well as advice and important information on painting portraits professionally!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kullberg is a born artist, self-taught and highly accomplished. In her first book, she proves to be a born teacher as well. She thoroughly and engagingly explores the details of the tools and techniques necessary for every element of creating portraits. Colored pencil is a medium that requires little money, no setup, no cleanup, and no health concerns--just as much hard work and talent as any other medium. With her fresh enthusiasm, Kullberg makes the work a pleasure. Collections that have Lee Hammond's similar Drawing Portraits in Colored Pencil from Photographs (North Light, 1997) may want to add this as well. In choosing between the two, Kullberg's personal approach edges out Hammond.

    Is it real or memorex?

    Ann Kulberg's pictures are so realistic it's hard to tell the drawing from the photograph. She is very helpful in guiding you towards the right shades to get a realisti effect. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to use colored pencils.

    ***EXCEPTIONAL***

    On a scale of 1 to 10 I rank my artistic 'desire' at 10 and my artistic ability at -10. I've literally taken out *every* art book my library has to offer (100+) and it wasn't until I read Ann Kullberg's - Colored Pencil Portraits that I actually felt 'I CAN do this.' The instructions are clear and inspirational and the book is astoundingly beautiful. I've placed it on my wish list and hope to have my own copy soon.
