Overview

Colored pencils offer aspiring artists a unique combination of creative versatility and precise control. This introductory course encompasses everything the budding and intermediate-level artist needs to get started right away: basic materials and tools; wet and dry techniques; the successful use of color, texture, and composition; the effect of perspective and depth on a drawing; maximizing a limited palette; and enhancing and burnishing colors. Sixteen skill-building projects and practical exercises are demonstrated through 150 color photographs, with detailed, expert instruction covering the four most commonly explored artists’ subjects: still life, landscape, people, and animals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Newey comes from a long line of artists and studied art and design at the London College of Printing. Here, he covers basic materials and tools; wet and dry techniques; the successful use of color, texture, and composition; and the enhancement and burnishing of colors. The 16 demonstrations are divided into four subject areas: still life, landscape, people, and animals. Each focuses on a specific colored-pencil technique and includes clear, step-by-step instructions with photographs. For a more comprehensive, sophisticated book for novices, see Beverly Johnston's The Complete Guide to Colored Pencil Techniques. Recommended as a good, workmanlike introduction to colored pencils.
