So im finally going back to school to get my high school diploma. Third time at this but you know what they say third times a charm. So on my first day i was asked my name and what were my future plans for when I’m done getting my diploma. I have to professions i would die for. 1.) to become an author. 2.) Become an artist. But i stopped and thought about it and realized as an author i can do my own cover art and/or depending on what type of book whether it be childrens books or other my own inner artwork for it.
This week i chose The New Colored Pencil on blogging for books so i can get some practice in and start teaching myself some of these techniques. I love it! I use to draw in high school (the first time i went) and i always saw it as stress relief, so i did it often. As i looked through and read this book I saw so many new ways to use pencils and colored pencils and even different types of paper.
To anyone who enjoys art or is just interested in how some artwork is done i woulod recommend this book. Its quick, simple and straight to the point! Below just like all the other reviews i will post whatever synopsis and buying link so you can check it out. Have a great day!
