The Complete Guide to Coloured Pencil Techniques by Beverley Johnston

Explore the full potential of this fascinating and versatile medium and learn how, using simple techniques, you can create works of tremendous subtlety and delicacy.A comprehensive techniques section introduces readers to the materials needed, and demonstrates in easy-to-follow step-by-step sequences essential coloured pencil techniques such as blending and shading. Readers are encouraged to look closely at their subjects - simple exercises demonstrate how to search for hidden tones and colours that might otherwise be missed.The author then provides 15 step-by-step projects for readers to follow. Starting with close-up drawings of subjects such as cats eyes and pebbles, the projects work through to more complex illustrations such as a still life with fruit and a tulip in a glass vase.In this way readers can build up skills gradually, using simple techniques learnt in earlier projects to complete the later ones. Each project is accompanied by a reference photo, a black-and-white outline sketch and a colour key, plus a Now Try This box to suggest further creative explorations.
