This book will deepen your knowledge about tools and materials as well as teach you new techniques and methods for achieving realism and giving depth to your drawings (with emphasis on portraits). It contains step by step examples, plenty of images and a very helpful chart about the blending abilities of several pencil brands when combined with various types of solvents.

I learned a lot about the tools and materials; their use, potential, limitations and interactions. Some of them I didn't even know existed and now I cant wait to try out (powder blender, ACP, etc). All the tips, techniques and instructions provided in the book made me realize how much more can be achieved with colored pencils but, what made this book unique and a must, is the use of a layering technique that takes inspiration from the traditional oil painting practices by the Great Masters which the author incorporates into her colored pencil portraits. It goes without saying that, after reading this book, I see my colored pencils in a new light. ( )

I have often ambled through galleries where a certain painting catches my eye - it looks exactly like real life, and it takes me a minute to realize that the painting is not in fact a photograph. I always wondered how the artist could accomplish such a feat, replicating the depth of life.

Here's how! Alyona Nickelsen walks the reader through the process of imitating real-life portraits in bite-size steps. I did not feel overwhelmed at the material covered in "Colored Pencil Painting Portraits," which was surprising, given just how in-depth and insightful Nickelsen's details were.

The star of this book was the last few pages: Nickelsen outlines, in detail, the pros and cons of various solvents that work well with colored pencils. I definitely will refer to these few pages in my future endeavors with colored pencils.

There is absolutely no denying Alyona Nickelsen's talent and skill. The drawings – or colored pencil paintings – shown in this book are gorgeous in their photo–realism… my only complaint, I think, is a bit of spot–blindness in some facial expressions. I used to draw, all the time, and always found it both fascinating and frustrating how hugely a single line could affect an expression; I remember spending a very long time on one drawing, and found it amazing how, without ever touching the mouth, I could create the impression of a smile by darkening a line of the eye. Erase that back a bit, and the smile faded. There's a reason most of the portraits you're going to see in museums or art books are of solemn sitters, or Mona Lisa smiles: a big toothy grin is very hard to pull off without straying into goofy territory. Teeth are hard.

I'm not sure it's entirely fair for someone as talented as Ms. Nickelsen to put out a how-to book. The odds against reaching anything remotely close to her level is so remote that it's almost a book full of fail. But if you go into this with the expectation of learning tips and tricks and tools and techniques (phew, didn't think I'd get the full alliteration out of that), and of being better than you were before you read it – then you can't fail. And of course there's the option of just paging through the incredible artwork on every page and admiring its evolution. Either way, this is highly recommended.

The usual disclaimer: I received this book via Netgalley for review. ( )
