Read from the Book

Colored pencil artwork requires few supplies. Many pencil brands are sold at reasonable prices  in art stores and online; however, my advice is to purchase artist-grade, professional pencils. Student-grade pencils will not produce lasting works of art because the colors tend to fade quickly.
