Editorial Reviews

Sorg, Eileen. Drawing Made Easy: Colored Pencil. Walter Foster. 2009. c.64p. illus. ISBN 978-1-60058-151-9. pap. $9.95. ART INSTRUCTION

Sorg, a young award-winning artist, creates precise drawings that capture the extreme realism and character of her subjects. Hers is a brief manual for beginners. For intermediate students, Kullberg, who runs a popular colored pencil web site, reviews in her book examples of mediocre work, analyses problems (like &ldquo;Chiclet teeth&rdquo;), and transforms each into a stronger image. Advanced artists will revel in Nickelsen&rsquo;s Colored Pencil Bible, filled with inspired, luminous techniques. -- Library Journal , July 2009
