CP Surfaces: Black Paper

I am still reading this but so far, it has proven to be a great purchase. I am learning all sorts of things but best of all is the step by step tutorials. Well worth including in any CP learning library!

A little disappo

While there were some very helpful tips and advice in this book, it was mostly lost in the dense pages of words. The step by step instructions for each ‘demo’ proved to be small novellas, rather than logical, clear, succinct instructions. The ‘conversational’ tone and approach does not need to be lost, but it is not helpful and shouldn’t be the only basis of how the information is presented. Readers would be better served if the information was provided in a user-friendly format.

We are sorry to hear you were so disappointed in this publication! Here at annkullberg.com, we strive to not only teach the "how", but also the "why" for completing each project in our colored pencil books. You may find our project kits more to your liking: https://annkullberg.com/collections/colored-pencil-project-kits. I will be refunding you next for your purchase. Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We certainly appreciate the feedback.

A good introduction to colour pencils on black paper

Have just begun on the exercises. I found the colour pencils categorisation useful. I was like more information on making the colours pop out. Also some suggestions on choosing the right black paper.
