Many colored pencil books share two features: involved exercises copying full fledged works by the author, and interminable layers of color, often provided without explanation. This book does neither, and benefits from the omissions. Inside are short projects, usually consisting of a single figure on a white background. The figures are often adorable--a tree frog, a kitten, a turtle, and so on. The layering used to produce the colors is also stripped down, rarely consisting of more than three colors. This approach has the twin advantage of offering easily digestible chunks that can be produced in a single sitting, a big advantage for those of us who are extremely busy but like to unwind with art, and simple enough color schemes that the underlying idea becomes transferable to other projects.

I take this book on airplanes with me, along with a colored pencil roll and a small sketchbook. It's a wonderful way to pass the time on a flight and I've even managed to trade some of... Read more
Have a couple of other colored pencil 'how-to' books but this one has the most useful information. Better examples of materials, pencil strokes and color schemes; even different ways to hold your pencils. Lots of animal examples: guinea pig, tree frog, puppy, kitten, horse & more; several man-made objects such as shoes, glassware and a classic car which are very helpful to learn transparency & shine of surfaces; a daisy flower plus the cover example of assorted fruit provide a wide assortment of practice to build your skills. Although written for those with drawing aspirations I find it's wonderful for getting realistic renditions in coloring books. I will be looking for more of the author's books.
These Walter Foster books are very good for beginner color pencil lessons. I have several and have been working my way through them. They give very good directions and have sketches for each picture that can be enlarged and copies to start you off ready to use the color. I don't have all the colors they recommend, especially the greys, but if can probably pick them up individually. I use Derwent pencils, Artist and Colorsoft. These books may be using Prismacolor or other brand; so at the beginning of each lesson I match the colors listed with my pencils' color grids and select the closest color I have to the one listed. I guess the good thing about that is that I have to really look at the colors and I am getting better at judging the warm/cool aspect and color matching.
