    Wonderful and informative......well done!

    This has been a joy to receive and study. Gary Greene has shared with us his life learned knowledge in the colored pencil world. As a beginner, I have been able to understand and practice his step-by-step instructions. The book itself is easy to open and follow while you actually do the work. The color charts and pictures are beautiful and informative. Thank you Gary Greene for sharing your talent and easy-to-follow instructions.
