Students will...be rewarded with a rich array of ideas and styles.”—Library Journal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Colored pencils are remarkably versatile, providing endless possible effects, whether on paper, wood, or fabric. Moreover, pencils cost less than other media and require few accessories. Angelo, the author/producer of 16 instructional videos and four books, intends Exploring Colored Pencils for all levels, but beginners will find the book intimidating. Intermediate and advanced students will, however, be rewarded with a rich array of ideas and styles. Professional artist and teacher Cook's Coloured Pencils is a good, inexpensive volume for personal use but at 64 pages is quite brief. Libraries have better, more comprehensive choices, such as Gildow and Newton's Colored Pencil Solution Book. Accomplished professionals, the authors cover crucial beginning topics, such as setup, technique, color theory, texture, and light in depth. Their format is crisp and easy to understand, even when concerned with advanced concepts like liquefying pigment, building up foundation color, and the effects of water reflections, coarse linen, or intricate lace. Of the three, this one is recommended unequivocally. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
