Ten stars on this very instructional and entertaining book!!!! It has everything you need to know about colored pencil work. I am so impressed. It is divided into 10 chapters and includes a page on troubleshooting wax bloom and solvent problems. Chapters include; Pencil stroke types, shading techniques, highlights on white and colored paper, textures, blending colors with solvents, blending colors with light-colored pencils, basics of color theory, color harmony, using gray colors to create selective focus and combining mediums. This book has become my coloring bible. I can throw away all those little pieces of paper with notes. The book is published in full color. Color everywhere.
