Coloured pencils are an increasingly popular drawing medium among leisure artists. They are practical, versatile, easy to use and ideal for beginners. This step-by-step guide covers colour basics, materials, techniques and composition. All the techniques are explained and illustrated and then put into practise in 16 demonstrations. The demos are divided into four sections - still life, landscape, people and animals. As well as the author's drawings, he's picked a gallery of work from other artists to show varying styles.
