"In recent years, the medium of colored pencil has expanded significantly. Divided into three sections on each main type of colored pencil--wax, oil, water-soluble--this guide covers both traditional and more modern colored pencil principles and styles. Included is a chapter on color theory; step-by-step excercises to familiarize the reader with a range of traditional, innovative, and unusual techniques; many handy comparison charts showing the characteristics of various tools, materials, and brands; and a very useful hue/color name/manufacturer appendix. VERDICT: Artists of all levels looking for a versatile, portable, and colorful new medium can draw inspiration from this book."
