VIVID Colored Pencil book

The book is very nice with helpful tips and suggestions. I'm still not finished reading it--lots of information! It arrived quickly and was packaged so nicely--yes, I will shop with you again.

I've read some parts of it that I think are helpful. It will be a good reference when I work on drawing cats and dogs and the tips on fur. The botanical tips are interesting. Of special interest is her Still Life intro with reference to the old Dutch masters. This is an area of interest to me and I would love for you to address this further. I'd like to try some painting in that style using pencils.

writing style

I am sorry to write a poor review, however, I was wowed into buying this book and was completely disappointed in its content. It is a great work of art but explanation's and reference photos were severely lacking. The content had many grammar errors and made for poor reading.

Not enough new information

I was rather disappointed with this book. First of all, I bought it because I wanted to paint a cavalier spaniel only to find no instructions for doing that. And I didn't find this information particularly new or educational.

Vivid colored pencil review.

The book is beautiful but should have been edited more closely. We paid for a correctly published book and the computer generated correctons certainly devalue the book.
