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

For intermediate students, Kullberg, who runs a popular colored pencil web site, reviews in her book examples of mediocre work, analyses problems (like “Chiclet teeth”), and transforms each into a stronger image. Advanced artists will revel in Nickelsen’s Colored Pencil Bible, filled with inspired, luminous techniques. -- Library Journal , July 2009
