Descriptions du produit



From the first time I picked up a colored pencil in my local art league class, I have been intrigued by the medium. More than two decades have passed since that course, and I have embraced the growth of colored pencil as a fine art medium with great enthusiasm. Since my first book, Drawing and Painting with Colored Pencil, was published by Watson-Guptill in 2005, there have been many product and technique developments. With a spirit of fun and adventure, I have incorporated new pencils, wax pastels, tools, and approaches into my own art. Whether I drew, brushed, grated, spattered, or even blew pigment through a screen, it has been an enjoyable and satisfying experience. In recent years, many new varieties and types of colored pencils have emerged, each with their own merits and characteristics—and sometimes inspiring new techniques. The varieties of pencils and the palette of colors in which they’re available have grown beyond wax- or oil-based “permanent” traditional pencils. Water-soluble drawing products now include new types of watercolor pencils, including ink-like pencils and even tinted aquarelle graphite pencils. Pigments are rich and dense, and more emphasis has been placed on lightfastness for the permanence of one’s art.

The emergence of water-soluble wax pastels—which may look like crayons but which offer much more in terms of quality, speed, and versatility—has been perhaps the most surprising development in the world of color drawing and painting. Aquarelle wax pastels swiftly cover large areas with rich pigment that dissolves instantly with the sweep of a damp brush. The wax pastel can also be sharpened to a point, or the pigment can be stroked from the tip with a wet brush. This type of aquarelle wax pastel can yield a highly pigmented liquefied wash which can then be applied with a brush. 

New and diverse drawing and painting surfaces that are colored pencil–compatible have emerged, too.

Longtime favorite lines of paper have expanded to include more colors. New brands of papers have appeared with a variety of textures, to appeal to artists’ wide-ranging tastes. Versatile illustration board ideally designed and textured for wet media as well as dry is now on the market. Translucent film–like vellum, acid-free and of high quality, offers speedy, rich laydown of colors. From fine-toothed silky paper to sandy-textured boards, dazzling pure white or toned to a range of colors, such supports offer an aspiring array of textures, hues, and unique traits—the potential unfolds with great possibilities. 

Colored pencil is ever-blossoming as a fine art medium, bringing with it new materials and surfaces, even an expanded concept of what “drawing a painting in color” means. This book presents many possibilities and techniques for widening those colored pencil boundaries. 

Artists whose work I have admired over the years, whether they were long-recognized figures in colored pencil circles or emerging artists I met through my workshop travels, have been generous in sharing their art, describing their tools and techniques, even revealing their sources of inspiration. You will linger and marvel over their art as I, too, have done. I am most grateful for their participation and the enhancement that their art has lent to The New Colored Pencil. My deepest gratitude goes to these very special guest artists, whose contributions so enhance these pages: Debbie Bowen, Jeannette Buckley, Karen Coleman, Barbara Grant, Mary Hobbs, Laura Miller, Jackie Treat, Ranjini Venkatachari, and Jana Westhusing.

I hope that learning about colored drawing materials and seeing the work of colored pencil artists will inspire you to consider such techniques and materials and to continue to grow creatively.

Revue de presse

"In recent years, the medium of colored pencil has expanded significantly. Divided into three sections on each main type of colored pencil--wax, oil, water-soluble--this guide covers both traditional and more modern colored pencil principles and styles. Included is a chapter on color theory; step-by-step excercises to familiarize the reader with a range of traditional, innovative, and unusual techniques; many handy comparison charts showing the characteristics of various tools, materials, and brands; and a very useful hue/color name/manufacturer appendix. VERDICT: Artists of all levels looking for a versatile, portable, and colorful new medium can draw inspiration from this book."

go deeper into colored pencil art 26 juillet 2014
Par wordsandpeace - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As you know, apart from reading and reviewing books, I also paint on rocks. And I’m open to other forms of art, considering eventually totally switching to colored pencil when I can no longer store and handle rocks.
This book is very interesting if you already know a bit about colored pencil. It is not a step by step guide for beginners.

The book is divided into 3 parts: one on wax-based colored pencils, one on water-soluble ones, and the last part shows you how to combine wax pastels and colored drawing media.
Each of the 3 parts deals with the type of pencils to use, which tools to choose, which surface to use for which purpose, and varied techniques on how to apply the colors and create different textures. The examples chosen are very pretty.

There’s also an awesome Appendix, giving the reference # of each color for the different brand. As we know for pencils and paints, unfortunately those codes are not universal, so depending on manufacturers, a code can refer to a different color, hence the usefulness of these 18 pages here at the end of the book.

There’s also a short bibliography and an alphabetical index.
Recommended for those who want to go deeper into colored pencil art.

A lot more technical than I was expecting... 1 août 2014
Par doremi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Wow! This author really knows her stuff. This is the most detailed, thorough book of this kind that I have ever seen. It was a lot more technical than I was expecting. I like to use colored pencils in my spiritual art journal and thought I’d get some good tips to help me there. While there were things that will be helpful for me in this book, it would really help my daughter who is a more serious artist.

The biggest thing that I will take away from this book is that “quality art begins with quality art materials.” If you want to make really nice colored pencil pieces, it’s probably not going to happen with the box of 12 pencils that you can pick up at the convenience store for $2.99.

The strength of this book is that it goes through so many tools….pencils, brushes, papers, erasers, etc., and tells you their strengths and weaknesses. So it will be a lot easier in the future to pick out tools that will fit the results we want to get. We’ve bought many art supplies in the past and haven’t really known how or when to use them. This book will be an invaluable resource in that area.

There were many helpful sections on value and the color wheel and even how you can make things “pop” by contrasting colors or layering them. The book has many sample pictures that show you what the author is talking about.

I would recommend this book to you if you want an in-depth resource on the tools and materials used in colored pencil pieces. If you are a novice like me, looking for a few techniques, there are probably other books out there that would be less overwhelming.

Thank you to Blogging for Books for providing me with a free copy of this book for the purpose of this review.

Good Introduction to Colored Pencil 7 juillet 2014
Par Melissa Books and Things - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I have been wanting to incorporate different things into my watercolors. I have considered colored pencil and now that they have water-soluble pencils I need to consider it further. There was even a section dedicated to the water-soluble pencils and even pastels. That was a nice surprise and fortunately (or unfortunately for my wallet) I now want to try those as well.

I didn't just get ideas in that section. I also had ideas of combining the more traditional pencils to watercolor. I didn't even consider the wax content in the pencil and how it could create a resist and it got me to thinking about being able to preserve some color through the resist or even just create interesting patterns with the resist itself.

My favorite part of the book is where she breaks down a lot of the more popular artist grade pencils and pastels. It helps you save a lot of time and money just by reading those parts. You can then decide what you want your work to do and pick the appropriate utensil. It made me want several brands just by reading their capabilities.

The part that I thought needed a bit more work would have been the areas on watercolor. She isn't a watercolorist and you could tell in this section. Although it was lightly visited a better section on watercolor brushes might have been a good choice. I enjoyed her selection of papers listed but I would have also liked perhaps a list of watercolor books that would be good for a beginner for those that haven't tried the medium yet.

I give this book 4 stars. It is easy to follow and helps you pick out your product easily. I think for a beginner it would give them a good overview of the medium and it also helps seasoned artists to think about how they might want to incorporate pencils and some pastels into their work.

Excellent Resource - Thorough and Great For All Levels of Artists 20 mai 2014
Par Talvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The new Colored Pencil is an incredibly thorough resource for artists using this artistic medium whose popularity is growing. From tips, techniques, tools, to the latest in pencil technoogy and attributes, this is a one-stop book for both budding and established artists.

The book is broken down by type of pencil: Wax based (traditional) colored pencils, water-soluble colored pencils, and wax pastels (the new crayon-type of pencil). Each chapter describes the various tools and accessories, brands and their prices/advantages, mediums, and of course different techniques. As well, drawings, in various stages, are presented for learning to create different types of works and very inspirational images are interspersed throughout.

The book is cleanly laid out and easy to read/follow. The sections are broken down in a way to make referencing the various techniques, tips, or tool info easy and efficient. I'm especially glad that the book hasn't been given a crazy 'arty' layout but is instead clean and straight-forward.

Additional artistic information is also presented - such as how to work color theory to create more vibrant drawings and the importance of negative space.

In all, a wonderful resource and perfect for any level of artist since the book has a breakdown of all tools and mediums, their attributes, and price levels.

Received as an ARC from the publisher.

The New Colored Pencil by Kristy Ann Kutch BOOK REVIEW! 8 avril 2015
Par Dorky Girl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
if you have ever wondered how someone can make a realistic look picture using only colored pencils then this is a good book for you as well as any new artist to the world of colored pencils. This book will teach you everything you need to know about how colored pencils are made and what they are made of, even how to shop for the perfect pencil that suits your needs. The New Colored Pencil also teaches you techniques used to make certain effects.

This book is also good for the new artist because it teaches you even more than just pencils, it also talks about what type of paper to use to achieve certain looks and it gives lists of different brands of pencils according to the type of art look you are going for (it even covers blending and the color wheel).

Thoughts: This book is very informative and can teach anyone willing to read it a lot about the world of colored pencil art. I myself am not a new artist and even I learned some new things from reading this book. I was very excited to learn about all the different types of colored pencils that can be used to make different types of effects, there are even some in this book that I had not heard of until I read about it in this book. If you like to color or draw with colored pencils then READ THIS! :)
