About In-Depth Tutorials:

Created by master colored pencil artists, each In-Depth tutorial features 30+ steps and focuses on teaching you why and not just how the artist applies their technique. No book or video comes close to the amount of instruction in an In-Depth tutorial. Art instruction books typically contain 4-6 steps per demo. That just scratches the surface! With large images and 30 or more steps, In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly how the artist works, making it easy to truly learn new colored pencil techniques and achieve success.

Note: Drawing paper not included. See list of supplies needed in images.

Limited brand of colours

I agree with Patricia's comment. This tutorial only uses Caran D'Ache Pablos and no other brand colours are given as an alternative. I didn't notice the page showing Pablos colours until I had bought the book version and with international postage it cost $48. I'm trying to match the colours with Luminance, but most of the names are different and no numbers are supplied. I'll take the time to match colours according to the illustrations, but this could have been avoided if the author had listed some comparisons in other popular brands. I have Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance colours but no Pablos.

river stones

was disappointed not using Prisma Colors instead Caran D'ache was recommended and I don't have those pencils. Trying to compare colors with Prisma was and is not easy. I have not finished the project at this time and not sure if I will.

Very good tutorial

I have only recently started working with colored pencils, so I was hesitant to undertake this project. I was pleased with the instruction and pictures. I was also pleased with my result. I changed up a couple of the elements but essentially did as instructed.
