Capturing Soft Realism in Colored Pencil

Ann's second book breaks away from portraiture and tackles landscapes, fabrics, textures and surfaces. It is organized and presented in the same clear, easy to follow manner as her portrait book. The subjects are varied, and breakdowns are very helpful - I found the section on landscapes particularly helpful - especially since it gave great tips on how to render difficult subjects like grass. For textures and surfaces, I tend to like Janie Gildow and Cecil Baird's books better, but this is still a good addition to your collection.
